I want to add my recommendation for Reitnut, Ralph Block.

As far as I know, he only posts on the Real Estate and REITs board, so he might not be as widely known as some who post on several boards. But, I think Ralph exemplifies the phrase, Learning Together.

He is eminently qualified on the subject of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). He has written and updated what is probably the most respected book on the subject. He runs a dedicated REIT mutual fund. He exemplifies a "helper" - one who helps others to learn, and he credits the rest of us with helping him learn. He takes a lot of time in patiently answering questions - frequently long detailed answers.

But the thing I most admire about Ralph is that he treats every poster with polite respect - beginners to the most experienced.

We who read and post on the Real Estate and REIT board are most fortunate to have a friend like Ralph - a man we have never met - but one whom we all admire and love.

He as many posts that can be cited as examples. Three recent ones, all on the Real Estate and REIT board, are numbers 15891, 16511, and 16591.
