Why RPRG?

We put the Analysis back in Market Analysis

Today, information is at everyone’s fingertips. The challenge is harnessing information in a way that answers our questions and responds to our needs. Our clients do not hire us simply to conduct research and compile reams of data with minimal interpretation. Rather, they hire us to gather and then evaluate data, think critically, provide insightful analyses, and offer well-researched opinions and recommendations. With those objectives in mind, our senior project directors and experienced analysts conduct assignments from start to finish. Experienced eyes inspect your site, investigate the neighborhood in which it is located and carefully view key competitors. We do not leave this fieldwork – the building block on which the analysis rests – to less experienced or “junior” staff. The experienced analyst is also the primary author of your report. Equally as important is that each analysis is approached as a unique challenge and set of circumstances, in which we build towards project specific findings, conclusions, and recommendations.
