How can we navigate technology’s impact on the world’s largest asset class?

Dror Poleg is the author of Rethinking Real Estate and the Co-Chair of the Urban Land Institute’s Technology and Innovation Council in New York. He is a former real estate and technology executive who now dedicates most of his time to researching the impact of technology on urban life and the way physical assets are designed, used, and valued. 

Dror advises executives across the real estate universe on emerging business models and consumer behaviors. His clients include multi-billion dollar companies such as AvalonBay Communities, British Land, Dubai Holding, and Cushman & Wakefield, industry organisations such as the National Multifamily Housing Council, NAIOP, EPRA, and INREV, as well as venture-backed startups such as Breather, Bumblebee Spaces, and Carson.

In this podcast:

  • How is the real estate model changing?
  • How does this shift fit in with wider macro economic trends?
  • What opportunities does technology bring to those working in real estate?
  • Who will be the winners and losers in the the future built environment?
  • What kind of decisions should real estate businesses be making now in order to thrive in the future?

Dror’s recommended books are anything by either Michael Parker or Clay Christensen:

For his favourite building, Dror picks Haussmann’s vision of Paris.

Dror’s technology / innovation to watch is WeWork. This pick is made post-IPO drama and on the basis that there is more to come in terms of the effect the business will have on the way in which real estate is operated.
