NAI Partners’ Chief Research & Data Scientist, Dr. Nat Holland, Featured in REALMASSIVE’s Innovation in Practice: The New #CREcosystem

Houston, Texas - March 24, 2016 - Momentum is building as commercial real estate professionals discover new ways to benefit from increased global connectivity, data transparency, and the speed of information exchange. Enterprise technology will continually evolve, but the core tenets of business remain; research, due diligence, networking, relationships, and transactions. Today, many are using sophisticated data and analytics tools and exploring social media to enhance these core competencies, not replace them.

Placing more accurate and accessible data at the heart of commercial real estate is the key to addressing the challenges facing the industry, while also opening up huge potential for profit growth and delivering impressive results to professionals. Dr. Nat Holland of NAI Partners suggests, “It is critical for stakeholders to move beyond historic ways to embrace new data-driven approaches, success of which will ultimately be gauged by knowledge-driven entrepreneurship derived from the data analytics."

Ultimately, success in the digital age lies not in the efficiency of technology, but with the people who wield it. Technology doesn’t equal change. Rather, technology gives us great capabilities and culture enables us to use them.
