Clayton Collins on the housing industry outlook in 2021
In today’s HousingWire Daily episode, HW+ Managing Editor Brena Nath joins HW Media Founder and CEO Clayton Collins to discuss the hottest topics coming across HousingWire’s news desk. Nath and Collins reflect on 2020 and discuss everything from the pivot to remote work, to HW Media’s acquisition of REAL Trends. The pair also talk about what’s next for the housing industry as it enters 2021 and the recent announcement of James Kleimann’s promotion to HousingWire managing editor from mortgage editor.
For some background on the interview, here’s a brief summary from the HW Media HQ article on Kleimann’s promotion to managing editor:
James Kleimann has been promoted to managing editor of HousingWire, the nation’s premier source of news and analysis for the mortgage, real estate and title industries.
In this role, Kleimann will be responsible for leading HousingWire’s newsroom, both in directing news coverage and leading the editorial staff. He will also continue his own reporting on the industry’s leading lenders, including writing in depth HW+ features and covering the trends that are powering the housing economy forward.
“We are thrilled to have James step into this critical role in our newsroom,” said Sarah Wheeler, HousingWire editor in chief. “Our ability to provide ‘news nowhere else’ was pivotal in driving tremendous audience growth over the last year, and James’ experience and talent will be key to delivering the compelling content our readers are looking for.”
Kleimann joined HousingWire in August 2020 as mortgage editor. He previously worked at The Real Deal, where he most recently served as the managing web editor. During his time there, Kleimann helped manage an award-winning, investigative newsroom that examined the successes, failures and controversies within the housing industry. Kleimann edited numerous stories that received awards from organizations such as the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) and the National Association of Real Estate Editors (NAREE).
