A group of senior analysts at Property & Portfolio Research recently participated in a full-day Clear Writing Workshop at their Boston office.

These analysts specialize in qualitative and quantitative research into real estate markets throughout the country. They put their research to work in highly-detailed market reports that reveal trends and predict changes that affect real estate investors and developers.

They rely on their ability to clearly communicate a variety of often complex statistics, attitudes, habits, and trends, and translate that data into insightful knowledge their readers can use to make effective decisions.

Business Analyst Laura Barreiro said, “This workshop showed me that good writing is not about the words, as we’ve been taught since we were kids. Rather, it’s about thinking first, writing mindfully, and communicating for the reader’s perspective.”

“Insightful. This is a great tool for learning how to think, and specific ways to improve how I communicate,” said Real Estate Economist Mathew Morell. “I learned the value of stepping back and planning before I put my ideas into sentences.”
