About Joshua Burd

Joshua Burd Josh is the Founding Editor of Real Estate NJ, which launched in 2016 as the only New Jersey-based print and digital publication focused on commercial real estate in the Garden State. Real Estate NJ reaches thousands of industry decision-makers and service providers. The monthly print edition (or digital if you prefer) and daily news briefs are simply must reads for everyone in the industry. Real Estate NJ is celebrating five years of publication in 2021, and its hard to imagine what we ever did without it.

He wrote and reported news and feature stories on commercial real estate, economic development, and sports and entertainment business, while cultivating high-level sources and engaging readers through social media. Before that, he worked for Gannett as a staff writer and weekend site editor.
