Javeed works remotely from India. So switching to a more remote work environment since the outbreak of Covid-19 hasn’t been an issue for him. At North by Northwest, Javeed works as our Data Production Specialist. He has a background of over 15 years of US real estate experience in both residential and commercial domains. Javeed says his areas of expertise are Lease Abstraction, Rent Roll, Operating Statements, Underwriting, Insurance, Comps, and Due Diligence.
For North by Northwest, Javeed supports documents from GIS, and inputs key data into the Datappraise system. He keeps this updated and verified, and prints and reviews the details for accuracy. Javeed also assembles past projects in order to investigate and compare the date of those sales.
Javeed shared why he thought NxNW’s data team had a unique process compared to similar companies. “The process flows seamlessly from the appraiser assigning the job to the folder created in our Dropbox. We need some amount of manual intervention in the projects to maintain their quality check. Therefore, by its nature, the process will never be fully automated.”
In the past, Javeed said the data team relied heavily on email correspondence, which was clunky and more complicated to navigate. Now, with the help from so many new technologies like chat support they are able to keep better updated on any changes in the process. One of the most useful technological changes brought on board is the data research center technologies. Javeed says, “Now we have moved to Datappraise. And I have the privilege of getting to test-run each new technology first.” Every member of the data team, including the Data Production Specialist, takes impetus from Data Team Manager, Lisbeth Northcott, who negotiates with the appraiser to get the extension.
