Both of our companies share a passion for helping customers access expert advice and builder data for real-time market clarity. This acquisition further accelerates Zonda’s reach throughout Arizona and enhances data and advisory services for homebuilders currently building or looking to build in the Grand Canyon State.
Zonda’s purpose is to inform, advise and connect the next generation of housing industry experts. Our insights, data products, and advisory services help our clients stay ahead, and we look forward to further anchoring ourselves within one of the fastest growing new homebuilding markets.
Jeff Meyers, CEO, Zonda
The Arizona market has not only recovered from a COVID-19-related slump but is now thriving due to buyer migration and low mortgage rates. This demand for housing has created a great opportunity for homebuilders and generates a clear need for robust offerings only we can provide. Together, the companies will expand current offerings for homebuilding partners to unleash the most complete view of where the market is headed and clear, actionable information to help customers make smarter decisions and grow their businesses.
Prior to starting Belfiore Real Estate Consulting 15 years ago, I worked with Jeff Meyers, Tim Sullivan, and the Zonda Team in various companies for a decade. Coming together to help the real estate community with our collective data and advisory services is a dream come true.

After being purchased and merged in late 2018 by MidOcean Partners, Hanley Wood | Meyers Research focused on a seamless and streamlined approach for shared clients to access housing data and information. The company acquired Bird.i, a satellite imagery, and artificial intelligence (AI) technology company, earlier this year further evolving the brand into a leading data, research, and technology company. In October 2020, Hanley Wood | Meyers Research rebranded to Zonda.
Zonda serves a diverse cross-category audience, including homebuilders, land brokers and developers, mortgage lenders, finance, building product manufacturers, and many more.
