From the November issue: They’re the talking heads on cable news screens, the sources behind industry stories, and the speakers at luncheons, seminars and panel discussions. Now more than ever, the mainstream media is relying on real estate experts who can provide commentary on a complex market. And while their names have graced the pages of The Real Deal and many other industry publications hundreds of times, they now routinely get calls and interview requests from all over the world. Barbara Corcoran, the founder of the Corcoran Group and now a regular on the “Today Show”; Jonathan Miller, the ubiquitous president of appraisal firm Miller Samuel; Dan Fasulo, managing director at Real Capital Analytics; and Bob Knakal, chairman of Massey Knakal Realty are just a few among a growing bunch of go-to contacts.
