The Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors reached a final decision yesterday to shut down its weekly Real Estate Review, citing losses caused by the region's sharp slowdown in home sales.With real estate companies cutting expenses, the newspaper was unable to pull in sufficient advertising, said Marc Witman, president of GBBR Publications, a board subsidiary.The publication already had missed two editions when the board decided to pull the plug.The board of Realtors had turned production of the newspaper over in March to Prestige Real Estate Magazine Co. Inc., a West Virginia printing company, in hopes of cutting advertising rates to attract more volume, Mr. Witman said.
