Welcome to Schafran Strategies, the consulting practice of Alex Schafran. I’m an author and expert on the politics of housing and urban development, especially in California.

I work with clients who are committed to building the difficult coalitions needed to push our housing industry and our housing policy towards a more equitable and sustainable future.

Stay tuned as this site develops, but don’t hesitate to reach out in the meantime.
