[VIP] The Notorious Interview: John Campbell, Stephens

I speak again with John Campbell, Managing Director of Equity Research at Stephens, Inc., a powerhouse regional investment bank and private equity firm based in Little Rock. He is one of the finest analysts of the small corner of the public markets that real estate represents and I have consistently found his coverage to be really interesting.

John recently attended the Inman conference in NYC and came away with some thoughts and conclusions based on what he saw and heard. Given that he’s very smart, but still an outsider to the industry, I wanted to get his take on where he sees the industry heading. And he was kind enough to spare some time right as earnings week approached.

Unfortunately, my computer dying on me plus travel plus trying to get my thoughts on Redfin and Zillow out got in the way of publishing this, but I think his insights are incredibly valuable on the direction of the industry as a whole.

As before, t’s a wide-ranging conversation presenting the Wall Street take on what they see going on in real estate.

Managing Partner of 7DS Associates, and the grand poobah of this here blog. Once called "a revolutionary in a really nice suit", people often wonder what I do for a living because I have the temerity to not talk about my clients and my work for clients. Suffice to say that I do strategy work for some of the largest organizations and companies in real estate, as well as some of the smallest startups and agent teams, but usually only on projects that interest me with big implications for reforming this wonderful, crazy, lovable yet frustrating real estate industry of ours.
