“Rob’s presence as Midwest bureau chief is significant for two major reasons,” says Real Estate Media editorial director and group publisher Michael Desiato. “First, he is a seasoned journalist who has covered the Midwest commercial real estate market for years. But just as important, Rob was a key player in the original Midwest reporting team when we launched back in 2000. As such, he returns with a thorough understanding of our daily mission and a familiarity with his colleagues. You couldn’t ask for a better recommendation, and we’re glad to have him back.”

Carr previously worked as a reporter and editor for weekly and daily newspapers. He also serves as the public affairs officer for the Navy Office of Community Outreach-Chicago in the Navy Reserves.

Danielle Anderson has strong roots in the Midwest and has written about commercial real estate in the region for several years. Most recently, she was editor of the Minnesota Real Estate Journal from November 2002 to March 2005. She also served as an associate editor of Midwest Real Estate News, and a staff writer at the Illinois Real Estate Journal. In addition to her extensive commercial real estate reporting experience, she has written for and edited business publications covering niches ranging from musical instrument retailing to firefighting.
