I’m Lizzy Alfs, a business reporter for The Ann Arbor News. I cover the region’s evolving real estate and development sectors, including the housing market, tax foreclosures, commercial real estate, restaurants and retail.
I also deliver breaking news reports, columns and enterprise coverage for the website and print edition.
I graduated from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor with a B.A. in English in 2011. During college, I was a news reporter for The Michigan Daily and an intern-turned-freelance writer for AnnArbor.com. My work has also appeared in Xylem Literary Magazine and The Ann Magazine.
I am a passionate writer who loves to share stories. I am intensively trained in digital media, and I enjoy using innovative reporting skills at an online-focused publication.
