What Real Estate Giants Are Saying About Technology | Q3 Edition
We listened to their quarterly earnings calls so you don't have to
Thesis Driven dives deep into emerging themes and real estate operating models. This week’s letter is a quarterly overview of what publicly-traded real estate companies are saying about technology and innovation in their businesses.
Each quarter, some of the largest real estate firms in the world tell us about their businesses. And we at Thesis Driven listen, with a specific focus on how those firms are thinking about technology, data, innovation, and the future. With Q3 earnings season in the rearview mirror, it’s a great time to analyze what the biggest real estate companies are saying about tech. (You can read Q2’s roundup here.)
