CoreLogic Appoints Chief Economist

January 31, 2023

CoreLogic has named Selma Hepp as chief economist.

In this role, Hepp leads the economics team, which is responsible for analyzing, interpreting and forecasting housing and economic trends in real estate, mortgage and insurance. She had served as interim chief economist since July 2022.

“I am honored and thrilled to lead our team as we continue to generate industry-leading, data-driven insights and thought-provoking perspectives on all things housing,” Hepp said. “Given the challenges of today’s housing market, CoreLogic’s depth, wealth and consistency of data position us to provide clear and actionable views on the property ecosystem and bring value to our clients and broader markets.”

Prior to joining CoreLogic in 2020, Hepp was chief economist and vice president of business intelligence for Pacific Union International, which was later acquired by Compass. Additionally, Selma has also held the role of chief economist for Trulia, senior economist for the California Association of Realtors, economist and manager for public policy and homeownership research for the National Association of Realtors and special research assistant at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“We are thrilled to have Selma as our newly appointed chief economist,” said Patrick Dodd, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “She has a proven track record and deep housing knowledge and research experience. As a well-respected thought leader in the housing industry, Selma’s analytical expertise will produce insights to help our clients and other stakeholders better navigate today’s dynamic real estate environment.”
