About The Market Distillery


Our Purpose


How's the market?

The Market Distillery was created with one goal in mind: to help real estate professionals answer the question "how is the market?"

The problem for most real estate professionals is that the information available is often at a national level. This can cause you think think and act one way, when your local market data would suggest otherwise. Worse yet, when your clients ask you questions, you can be stuck without a local answer and clients who won't take action. 

With 50+ years combined in the real estate business, Alex Stewart, Quinton Harris, Dr. Steve Tufts, and Daniel Halvorsen joined together to form The Market Distillery. With a data-driven approach, The Market Distillery takes thousands of data points about the local market and distills them into easy-to-understand insights that help you guide your clients to make wise real estate decisions.
