COLLEGE STATION (Real Estate Center) – Judging by the response to last week’s call for votes in the final round of our “favorite blog” contest, Texas real estate professionals are, to say the least, passionate when it comes to who they read online.

A whopping 1,400 votes flooded the Real Estate Center.

When the votes were tallied, Shannon Register’s blog, which covers the Houston area, emerged as the winner.

Tying for second place was Ralph Bivins’ Realty News Report — also from Houston — and Candy Evans’ Dallas Dirt.

Third place honors went to Scott Nicholson’s Austin-area blog.

Congrats to all the winners! We look forward to seeing you at next year’s competition.
