“MeetElise’s superior technology and measurable customer benefits have resulted in tremendous growth, establishing the company as the leading enterprise AI startup for commercial real estate.  Starting with leasing in the multifamily segment, MeetElise has an exciting vision to bring the benefits of conversational AI and automation across the entire commercial real estate industry,”- Travis Putnam, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Navitas Capital.

In the past few years, the need for modern technology in the multifamily space has accelerated, especially for AI. Once seen as a nice-to-have, AI is now a necessary tool for multifamily communities to have in their arsenal if they want to capture prospective renter’s attention. With best-in-class natural language processing capabilities, MeetElise is the most sophisticated AI on the market allowing prospects to advance through the lead funnel and schedule tours with zero human intervention. Most importantly, ‘Elise’ consistently delivers top-notch customer service with 100% accurate responses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

After achieving initial product-market fit within the enterprise clients, MeetElise has successfully begun expanding into other real estate verticals, achieving 275%+ YoY growth.

“Honestly, MeetElise has allowed us to be able to communicate with prospects 24/7 and ensure that no one falls through the cracks. With so many people working from home, people have weird schedules which makes it hard for them to talk to us during the day. [MeetElise]… is responding to leads faster than we could or our competitors. For my team, it’s like they have a partner in leasing.” – Community Manager at Greystar

Automation is the only way to scale housing operations effectively.” – Minna Song, CEO of MeetElise
