Ever wonder what it’s like to be a real estate reporter for a major news outlet? Wonder no more. We have a couple of them lined up for you in the next two weeks. I like to know what people think and how they think and these reporters provide a lot of the interpretation for the data we all consume as real estate investors. Today we are going to be joined in a few minutes by Devon Thorsby from US News and World Report. I’m planning to ask Devon how she feels about real estate in general, what she sees coming for us in 2019, and how she wound up at the magazine. Devon Thorsby is the Real Estate editor at U.S. News & World Report, where she writes consumer-focused articles about the homebuying and selling process, home improvement, tenant rights and the state of the housing market. She has appeared in media interviews across the U.S. including National Public Radio, WTOP (Washington, D.C.) and KOH (Reno, Nevada) and various print publications, as well as having served on panels discussing real estate development, city planning policy and homebuilding. Previously, she served as a researcher of commercial real estate transactions and information, and is currently a member of the National Association of Real Estate Editors. Thorsby studied Political Science at the University of Michigan, where she also served as a news reporter and editor for the student newspaper The Michigan Daily.
