James R. DeLisle, Ph.D. is an associate professor of real estate and Director of the Lewis White Real Estate Center at the UMKC Bloch School of Management. His charge is to help build a preeminent real estate program that strikes a balance between academic rigor and state-of-the-art industry practices. Drawing on this foundation, students are trained in critical thinking and the spirit of entrepreneurship necessary to take on the complex real estate problems that the next generation of industry leaders must be able to solve.
DeLisle comes to the Bloch School from the University of Washington where he was the Runstad Professor of Real Estate and director of graduate studies. DeLisle has spent almost half of his forty-year career in real estate as a professional with specializations in applied investment research and strategic portfolio management.
DeLisle received his Ph.D. in real estate and urban land economics from the University of Wisconsin under his mentor, the late Dr. James Graaskamp, one of the leading academic proponents of applied real estate research.
