Rebecca Liebson - Real Estate Reporter

Real Estate Reporter

As the real estate reporter, I cover one of the hottest industries in the Tampa Bay area and delve into how the market impacts the lives of the people who live here. Like many Florida converts, I grew up in a suburban town outside of New York City. Before arriving in Tampa I spent two years in South Carolina where I reported on affordable housing issues. Most of my free time is spent watching a variety of trashy reality TV shows.
