In her new role, Fairweather will lead the Seattle-based brokerage’s team of economists and data scientists in their ongoing analysis of housing and real estate trends. Before working at Amazon, she was an economist at Intensity Corp. She holds a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago and a Bachelor’s degree in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
 
"The housing market is a perfect example of how psychology affects the economy," said Fairweather. "For most of us, buying a home is the biggest financial decision we'll make in our lifetime, and yet traditionally, homebuyers have little experience and limited education on the process or the market. Emotions play a large role in real estate. I'm excited to use Redfin's unique data to understand these dynamics, and ultimately, educate consumers so they can feel confident and informed in their decisions."
