Realtor.com® has named Danielle Hale chief economist, the News Corp subsidiary Move, Inc.-operated company recently announced. Hale, formerly an economist and policy researcher at the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), is responsible for developing and translating real estate trend data into consumer and industry insights, as well as leading a team of industry analysts and economists.
“We are incredibly proud to welcome Danielle to the realtor.com family,” says Nate Johnson, chief marketing officer for realtor.com “Danielle’s in-depth housing market knowledge and research experience will help us hone and grow our research capabilities so we can leverage realtor.com’s vast housing database to provide even more insights to homebuyers, sellers and dreamers, and professionals.”
“Realtor.com’s economics and research operation has emerged as a leading resource for valuable, actionable, and reliable housing market information,” says Hale. “I look forward to working with the tremendously talented team to provide consumers and industry professionals with the tools and expertise they need to navigate the real estate world during this period of unprecedented competition and demand.”
Hale served as managing director of Housing Research at NAR, overseeing the production of housing market data, including NAR’s monthly pending and existing-home sales indices and quarterly home price reports. Hale previously served as manager of Tax Policy Research, leading research projects on topics including how federal, state and local policies impact the real estate market.
“Danielle possesses a rare talent for applying rigorous statistical analysis in all her work along with the ability to communicate the results to everyday people,” says Lawrence Yun, chief economist at NAR. “She will be a valuable asset to realtor.com and for consumers.”
Before joining NAR as an economist in 2008, Hale spent three years at the American Enterprise Institute, where she produced research and managed its executive office’s communications. Her work during that time included research contributions to Dr. Allan Meltzer’s A History of the Federal Reserve, Volume II (University of Chicago Press, 2010).
