As President and Chief Executive Officer of MarketPointe Realty Advisors, Mr. Valone has been an expert in economic real estate market analysis for the Southern California housing market for more than three decades. Through years of experience, Mr. Valone has earned an outstanding reputation as a market research analyst expert and real estate consultant, as well as being a leading authority on the Southern California housing market. He is a consistent contributor to the real estate sections of the San Diego Union Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, the San Diego Daily Transcript, San Diego’s BIA Builder Magazine, Southern California Builder, Builder and Developer, the Wall Street Journal, the Orange County Register, and the Press Enterprise. Mr. Valone is also a frequent guest on area radio talk shows discussing real estate trends and a featured presenter at the Southern California Building Industry Show (BIS), HOMEX as well as numerous BIA meetings and real estate panels discussing real estate market trends.
In addition to his duties as President and CEO of MarketPointe, Mr. Valone is a principal real estate consultant specializing in residential projects ranging from infill high-density residential projects to standard subdivisions to large scale master planned communities. Mr. Valone attributes his keen understanding of the real estate market to hands-on, in-field inspections of competitive projects and a his unique awareness of consumer needs. Through consumer interviews and analyzing consumer research, Mr. Valone has systematically intertwined qualitative characteristics of the marketplace with his personally-developed sophisticated computer database and analytical models to ensure that the formulation of conclusions and recommendations are both buyer-sensitive and market-valid.

In recent years, as the redevelopment activity has exploded in the San Diego downtown marketplace, Mr. Valone has become a specialist in the low-to-high-rise infill condominium and rental developments working on numerous high-density projects in San Diego, Los Angeles, Long Beach and Orange County. As a member of the San Diego Downtown Residential Market Association (founded by Centre City Development Corporation and the downtown developers) and through his position as official market analyst for DRMA, Mr. Valone has developed insights into urban development shared by few.

Mr. Valone has dedicated much of his time to serving the Building Industry. He has served numerous years as a member of the Board of Directors for the San Diego County Building Industry Association (BIA), and has chaired the BIA’s Communication Committee and Employee Outreach Committee as well as serving on the Housing Affordability Taskforce and the Strategic Planning Group. His dedication to the industry goes beyond the boundaries of San Diego through his work at CBIA (the California Building Industry Association) where he has served years as the Vice Chairman of the Public Affairs Committee.
He has been actively involved in developing real estate oriented, consumer market research projects with San Diego State University's market research department and its Real Estate Land Use Institute and is a founding partner in the Southern California New Attitude Study, a seven-year old analysis of Southern California consumer likes, dislikes and trends.
