J.K. Dineen, a real estate reporter for the San Francisco Business Times, has joined the San Francisco Chronicle as the real estate reporter in the business section.

Dineen now covers real estate, neighborhoods, housing, and the politics of land use.

He is the author of “Here Tomorrow,” a book about historic preservation in California (Heyday 2013) and is currently finishing up a book about legacy bars of San Francisco, which will be published by Heyday in 2015.

Prior to joining the staff at the Chronicle, he was a reporter at the Business Times for eight years. Prior to that he was on staff at the San Francisco Examiner, the New York Daily News, as well as a bunch of daily and weekly newspapers in his native Massachusetts.

He is a graduate of Macalester College.

In an email to Talking Biz News, Dineen said, that the Business Times was “the most simpatico newsroom I’ve worked in, but that the Chronicle gave me a chance to take all that I had learned about real estate and apply it to more broader metro stories.”
