A Day in the Life of a Real Estate Reporter with Jonathan Lansner


How does one of the nation’s most trusted business reporters cover the real estate market?

To find out, Wendy Ross asked Jonathan Lansner of the Orange County Register to share his expertise in regional economics and real estate markets. He is a past national president of the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing and a 1979 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. 

Jonathan has been reporting on Orange County business, and specifically real estate markets, since the late ‘80s — timing that corresponds with the local economy’s explosive growth. In this interview, Wendy and Jonathan swap stories about California’s wild real estate market and debate the use of data in reporting and decision-making.
