The Real Deal, the nation’s leading real-estate focused news publication, is looking for a talented reporter/editor to help anchor our Los Angeles newsroom. 

With over 3 million visits a month, is the go-to news source for the country’s top real estate, finance and investment professionals. Our coverage includes breaking news, investigative stories, market reports and longform narrative profiles. We won the General Excellence award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers in 2018, Quantcast rates us among the 800 most-visited websites in the U.S., and our work is regularly cited by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, CNN, Variety and a host of business publications.

We cover the deals, of course, but also try through our reporting to weave a tapestry of the characters that make the market – the developers with skyscraper dreams, the politicians who kiss their rings, and all the assorted hustlers in between. The Associate Editor would be responsible for writing several original web stories per week on the L.A. real-estate beat, produce in-depth features for our quarterly magazine, and edit breaking news for the website. 

This is one of the biggest and most dynamic real estate markets in the world. The ideal candidate will have an interest in covering money and power and a keen sense of how the industry brings together elements of politics, business, entertainment, finance and law. The ability to break news is a must, as is the ability to cultivate sources, pitch story ideas, write clean copy on deadline, and spot holes in reporting.  Experience in business journalism is a must. 

This is a full-time position based at TRD’s West Hollywood office. Salary is competitive and is based on experience. Benefits include health insurance, a 401-K plan and the ability to grow within a rapidly-expanding organization.
