The Charlotte Business Journal is looking for a reporter to cover real estate in our fast-growing region. This beat focuses on deals, projects and trends in Charlotte's urban core and the areas that are emerging as the core grows outward. Our real estate reporter is expected to provide forward-looking business intelligence. This means getting sources to tell you stuff you're not supposed to know, mining public documents for hidden gems and using your own powers of observation to figure out what's really going on. In this job, scoops matter. A lot. The ideal candidate will be exceptionally good at source building, be intensely competitive, possess sharp news judgment and be able to connect disparate dots. Reporters in our newsroom break hard stories that sometimes sources don’t want brought to light, but they don’t burn bridges.
