There's plenty of real estate news to go around in Oklahoma City.

Have y'all noticed the sheer volume of commercial real estate news lately, just in Oklahoma City?

No way could I, or any one person, keep up with it.

So let me give attaboys to fellow business news scribes Steve Lackmeyer and Brianna Bailey.

They earned them for good reasons. Heck, I've called Lackmeyer “the Mayor of Bricktown” for years — and he's annexing property.

We all report commercial real estate news almost every day, not just on Saturdays and not just on this page of the Business section. Here's a glance at what you might have missed just this week.

At least two groups are vying to purchase the country club property, which despite its luxurious facade, was saddled with heavy debt under its previous owners and needs an injection of cash. ...

•  Tuesday, from Brianna, “Love's buys three office buildings from Chesapeake.”
