MiB: Jonathan Miller

In the latest “Masters in Business” podcast, I speak with Jonathan Miller, a Bloomberg View contributor and co-founder of Miller Samuel. He blogs at Miller Matrix.

Miller is an expert on real estate appraisals and transactions, and runs one of the larger appraisal firms. He has created a variety of real estate data analytics for various regions as well as nationally. He is also sought after as the “go to” appraiser for the many of the most expensive penthouses in Manhattan.

In our conversation, Miller notes that all housing is local, but credit is national. Hence, the differences between the middle class housing market, driven primarily by access to credit, and the high end, which has become a nearly an all cash market.

You can download the podcast here or on Apple iTunes, or stream it at SoundCloud. All of our prior podcasts are available on iTunes.
