Brad Thomas has more than 25 years’ experience in commercial real estate, where he’s formulated a deep understanding of development, finance, and securities analysis. His experience is rooted in value investing thanks to his background as a developer and his continuing career as an investor and advisor.

As CEO and Senior Analyst for iREIT, and host of The Ground Up podcast, Thomas researches and writes on a variety of real estate-based income alternatives, with a primary focus on publicly-traded REITs. His broad understanding of capital markets in general has given him a particularly strong track record when it comes to evaluating the most intelligent companies out there – with a keen eye on distinguishing between solid investment operations and speculative ones. 

Thomas, who received his bachelor’s degree in Business and Economics from Presbyterian College, is editor of the Forbes Real Estate Investor newsletter. He writes weekly for and The Property Chronicle, as well as Seeking Alpha, where he’s the #1 analyst on REITs and Finance. Author of The Trump Factor and co-author of The Intelligent REIT Investor, he’s been featured in Forbes MagazineKiplinger’sU.S. News & World Report, and Money. NPR, Institutional Investor, and GlobeStreet have also published his work, and he is a frequent contributor at Fox & Friends and Fox Business.

In addition to his real estate interests, Thomas is an accomplished and sought-after speaker throughout the U.S. and on the international stage. When he’s not working, he enjoys writing books (with one underway right now) as well as being a devoted father to his five wonderful children.
