Top 10 Blogs of 2013

Carter’s List of Most-Read Blogs from 2013

The past twelve months have been busy for the Carter Blog! In 2013, we featured 6 guest blogger articles covering a variety of topics, featured 22 of our associates in our “10 Things You Don’t Know About” biweekly column, and posted 8 videos spotlighting our projects.

We love showcasing work and projects for our clients and, as witnessed by the list below, you love to read about them! Just this week, our stories were listed as top news by Decatur Patch and Atlanta Business Chronicle. Carter’s cover-page story, which we highlighted on our Blog, Carter Finding Opportunities didn’t make our list but it was ranked #15 in the ABC’s most-read commercial real estate stories in 2013. Our project in Decatur has also been featured on the Decatur Patch since we announced it back in March, which included Decatur Patch Interviews Conor McNally, another popular video taken on-site in downtown Decatur.
