Today's comment

July 24, 2014

Kerry Nicholson: "I have used Dupre + Scott research for several decades, first as a lender with Wells Fargo and Bank of America, and for the last 13 years in my role in acquiring, developing, and managing apartment projects. While there are a number of other fine organizations which provide additional insight into our regional market, Dupre + Scott is the "gold standard", the essential data bedrock you will want to avail yourself of in order to compete effectively in this highly sought after marketplace."

"I have been especially impressed at how they have not tended to rest on their laurels, but have each year somehow found a way to increase the breadth, depth, and utility of their offerings. Finally, in a world full of staid, deadly dull market research and commentary, Dupre + Scott's publications feature sophisticated humor and social comment woven into their observations in a way that actually enhances comprehension (maybe because it helps me stay awake to the end of the piece!)." (Kerry is Senior Managing Director, Washington & Oregon of Legacy Partners, an investment and development company.)
