StratoDem Analytics is pleased to announce its 2018 Data Science Research Fellow, Sara R. Rutledge.
Ms. Rutledge is an independent economist with a twenty-year research career in the real estate industry.
Sara Rutledge was previously the Director of Research for the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF), a not-for-profit industry association that provides investment performance indices and market data for U.S. commercial real estate. Before NCREIF, she was CBRE’s Director of Research and Analysis for Texas, leading the region’s research team and thought leadership as well as research initiatives for CBRE’s global energy industry vertical. Ms. Rutledge was a Senior Research Analyst at Invesco Real Estate from 2005-to-2013, where she developed real estate investment strategy, led the U.S. metro-level real estate forecast process, and built a forecast model for U.S. real GDP growth.

As StratoDem Analytics’ inaugural fellowship recipient, Ms. Rutledge assumes a part-time role with the firm, supporting its growth in service to the real estate industry. Her extensive background in real estate research will benefit the firm across disciplines from product-development and analysis to communications. While building value for StratoDem Analytics clients, she will benefit in-turn from expanding her advanced, legacy real estate analysis skills to include data science methods.
