Real Estate Trainer
John Tuccillo is one of the foremost real estate and housing finance economists in the United States. His current consulting practice is focused on strategic and business planning, and his experience and counsel are sought out by trade associations, major real estate and other private firms. His presentations on the economic outlook, real estate markets and change in the real estate business are invariably witty, informative and accessible to both lay and professional audiences.
He was educated at Georgetown University and Cornell University, and holds a doctorate in economics. His books, The Eight New Rules of Real Estate and Click and Close (written with Jim Sherry), are best sellers and have been instrumental in shaping the thinking of real estate industry leaders as they approach the challenge of changing their business models. His new book, New Business Models for the New Economy, was released in November 2002.
From 1987 to 1997 he was Chief Economist for the National Association of Realtors. He now runs his own consulting business, JTA, LLC, specializing in strategic and business planning. His clients have included Fannie Mae, Microsoft, FNIS, GMAC, Prudential Real Estate Associates, Re Max, Cendant, Ellie Mae, and a host of large independent real estate firms, as well as state and local Realtor associations.
