This paper examines publications and citations for topic and technique trends in JREFE and REE during the period 1988-2001. Publication and citation patterns reveal real estate as a largely empirical field. The mix of topics and techniques published by the two journals as well as sources cited and garnering citations are converging over time. Within topic of technique categories, the most frequently cited papers or authors tend to garner citations that vary with the relative popularity of the category in the broader literature. Yet, the impacts of top contributors reflect significant contributions outside their most cited research in one specialized one topic area or technique.
