Reitnut (Ralph Block) is a shining example of The Motley Fools motto, "To Educate, Amuse & Enrich."

Reitnut literally wrote the book on REITs. (I bought this book. It's very good and now in its fourth edition.)

Despite his work as an author and writing his own blog, Reitnut always graciously shares his deep knowledge of REITs with TMF members on the REIT Board.

Asking Reitnut a question is like having a talking book that soon responds with a personal reply.

Here are some of Reitnut's best posts for 2013. (With thanks to zoofreak.)

Reitnut's posts are always well-thought out and full of analysis and specific recommendations.

Reitnut is also a consummate gentleman. No matter what the question, Reitnut always answers it patiently. Reitnut is kind, reliable and consistent. I feel the greatest respect for Reitnut, one of the most distinguished members of TMF.

Reitnut has long been a Feste Award runner-up. It's about time that his great contributions to TMF are recognized with a Feste Award and the coveted gold-and-green plaque.
