Joining forces with Smith | Schnider, Market Insight Analyst, Josh Sullivan takes the firm's research capabilities to a heightened level.
Smith | Schnider’s market value appreciated even more with the recent addition of Josh Sullivan as our new Market Insight Analyst. Josh comes to us from The CoStar Group, a national authority in commercial real estate research.
At CoStar, Josh specialized in researching and compiling market data, transactional data, and property details. Josh took a very hands-on approach communicating with top brokers and commercial real estate professionals daily to capture recent transactions within the market, as well as new projects in the pipeline. He consulted key clients that included: CBRE, Marcus & Millichap, Forest City Realty Trust, and Lee & Associates, and a year into his role was in the top 10% of researchers at CoStar for sales comparable publications.
In this new role with Smith | Schnider, Josh will be developing customized reporting for both the home builder and developer sides of the business in market analysis, local construction comparables, demographic and psychographic trends, and other essential buyer demand metrics.
“Josh’s ability to unite innovative market trend technology with on-the-ground local research heightens our research program to an entirely new playing field. We’re tapping deeper into local buyer insight to forecast a more granular level of demand,” says Ron Smith, President of Smith | Schnider.
Josh holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Farmer School of Business, Miami University, with a double minor in Entrepreneurship and Chinese language studies. During his tenure at Miami, Josh was a recipient of the Redhawks Excellence Scholarship and the Richard D McDonough Golf Scholarship for his achievements in and out of the classroom. Josh was also an active member of multiple organizations on campus including but not limited to, Habitat for Humanity, Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, and Nourish International.
Josh is a New England native who spends his free time enjoying the great outdoors, whether it’s golfing, hiking, or anything in-between.
