Asieh Mansour to retire from real estate research industry

by Sara Kassabian

Asieh Mansour has announced her departure as head of Americas research at CBRE, where she was based in the firm’s San Francisco office.

“I will miss my CBRE colleagues but look forward to the next chapter of my professional career,” Mansour says.

After 25 years of real estate research, notably with CBRE and RREEF, Mansour says she is retiring from the sector to evaluate her long-term professional career over the next year. In the near term, she will be traveling abroad to visit family living outside the United States.

Prior to joining CBRE, she worked as the managing director, head of Americas research, at RREEF. She first joined RREEF in 1998 as the global macroeconomist for RREEF, where she supported investment and acquisition decisions for real estate, infrastructure and private equity. Previously, she was the senior regional economist with Standard & Poor’s Data Resources (DRI).

Among her key accomplishments at CBRE, Mansour highlights building the research foundation and expanding research capabilities with thought-provoking reports and broader market coverage; increasing coverage of industry segments; and recruiting new research personnel.

She published several applied research works on the econometric specification of hotels and the industrial markets, performance characteristics of infrastructure investments, non-normality of real estate returns, and hedging risk in real estate investments. Mansour also received two manuscript prizes from the American Real Estate Society, and is treasurer of the International Women’s Forum at the Northern California chapter.
