Realty-Builder Editor

If you know anything about Florida business, you know that everything revolves around dirt — real estate.

That’s where the money is. And you know what they say: “Follow the money.”

In this case, let’s say we’re looking for someone to follow the development. Specifically, follow residential home building and selling in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida.

We have an immediate opening for the editor position of our nearly 20-year-old specialty monthly, Realty-Builder. 

Realty-Builder is one of 14 newspapers, three magazines and eight websites that make up the Observer Media Group, a family-owned company based in Sarasota, Fla., with 125 employees and operations in 12 Florida markets. Realty-Builder is also a sister publication to the 105-year-old Jacksonville Financial News & Daily Record, also part of the Observer Media Group.

With a circulation of 20,000, Realty-Builder is the leading publication in Northeast Florida for home builders, Realtors and the associated industries that serve them. That audience relies on Realty-Builder to keep it abreast of the trends, changes, companies and people influencing the fast-growing residential real estate market Jacksonville.

As editor of Realty-Builder, you will be part of the company’s Jacksonville editorial team and will work in tandem with the editors and reporters at the Daily Record.

Specifically, you’ll be responsible for the whole shebang, including:

  • Creating an annual editorial calendar;
  • Conceptualizing and plannig the editorial content for each edition;
  • Assigning stories to freelancers; 
  • Writing major stories; 
  • Editing and helping edit the stories;
  • Working with the editorial designer on the look of the publication;
  • Coordinating editions with the Advertising Department;
  • Networking in the community with Realtors and home builders.
  • Finally: Producing an engaging, must-have, must-read publication for the region’s real estate and home building industries.

It sounds like a lot, and it is. But it’s essentially yours to make a difference.
We’ll make it worth your while with highly competitive compensation (and standard benefits — health, dental, life, 401k, vacation).

If you think you would have fun and fine rewarding becoming a leading voice and a leader in two of the most important industries in Greater Jacksonville; and if you think you have the right stuff and enthusiasm, then show us: Send an email that inspires us to pick up the phone and call you. Accompany that email with a resume, too.
