“IT HAS EX­CEP­TIONAL RE­PORT­ING ON REAL ES­TATE IN THE SANTA FE AREA. Its reg­u­lar col­umns would be of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est to both home own­ers and those seek­ing homes in the area.” Those were the judges’ com­ments about the Home/Santa Fe Real Es­tate Guide magazine, which re­cently won an award in the Na­tion­alAs­so­ci­a­tion of Real Es­tate Ed­i­tors’ 67th An­nual Jour­nal­is­mCon­test. Home won the Bronze Award in the cat­e­gory Best News­pa­per Real Es­tate or Home Sec­tion.

The en­try was the magazine’s July 2016 is­sue. It was judged for sto­ries about a Taos gallery and house on the mar­ket, two new realty firms that em­pha­size the in­ter­net, a Santa Fe home and gar­den tour, and a lo­cal man who in­vented a rainwater-chan­nel­ing de­vice for adobe-style homes, as well as a pro­file on Re­al­tor Melissa Adair and a fea­ture on the 30th an­niver­sary of Cor­ner­stones Com­mu­nity Part­ner­ships, which works with com­mu­nites to re­store his­toric adobe build­ings. The is­sue also has seven col­umns by lo­cal writ­ers.

Magazine edi­tor PaulWei­de­man has been a mem­ber of theNa­tion­alAs­so­ci­a­tion of Real Es­tate Ed­i­tors (NAREE) since 1997. This is the fourth time he andThe Santa Fe New Mex­i­can have won a NAREE award for the magazine’s ed­i­to­rial con­tent: first place in 1998 and 2008, and sec­ond place in 2010, all for the cate­tory Best News­pa­per Real Es­tate or Home Sec­tion for pub­li­ca­tions with a cir­cu­la­tion un­der 250,000. The 2017 award was for the same cat­e­gory but with no cir­cu­la­tion lim­i­ta­tion. The Gold Award went to the Orange County Reg­is­ter, the Sil­ver to the Wall Street Jour­nal, and an Honor­able Men­tion to theWash­ing­ton Post (which won 14 other awards in the 32 award cat­e­gories.)
