Emily L. Mahoney - Real Estate Reporter

Real Estate Reporter

I cover real estate, which means I get to report on what is most people's biggest purchase in their lives: their home. I'm interested in the twists and turns of the real estate market, but also how our living situations — good and bad — play a massive role in our lives. I want to tell the stories of those who don't have a comfortable place to call home, of renters getting scammed, how our warming earth is changing the way we build. I previously covered politics in the Tallahassee bureau, which means I have some war stories to tell. Want to hear them? Talk story ideas? Send me an email.
