A magazine, podcast, and annual report produced by the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University won top business communication honors in Houston. The center is part of Mays Business School.

Each won a Bronze Quill Award of Excellence from the Houston chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) .

The Center was recognized for its quarterly periodical Tierra Grande magazine, its weekly Red Zone podcast, and its unique annual report/calendar combination.

The awards came less than two weeks after Tierra Grande was honored with the top international award, a Gold Quill, which was presented at IABC’s  global conference in New Orleans.

Forty-five awards were presented at the IABC/Houston gala. Coincidentally, the Real Estate Center is 45 years old this year. Center communications have received 213 local, state, regional and international awards since its founding in 1971.

Funded primarily by Texas real estate licensee fees, the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University was created by the state legislature to meet the needs of many audiences, including the real estate industry, instructors, researchers and the general public.
