TORONTO & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Real Brokerage Inc. (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing, publicly traded real estate brokerage, kicks off RISE 2023, its second annual signature conference, today in San Diego with a focus on innovation to simplify the real estate transaction and leverage artificial intelligence to enhance agents’ ability to attract and serve clients.
At this morning’s opening session, Real Chief Technology Officer Pritesh Damani will unveil the company’s new consumer app that allows agents to invite their clients to apply for a mortgage, be preapproved in a matter of hours (and, in some cases, minutes) and be cleared to close on a new home in as few as 14 days (and sometimes less) by using One Real Mortgage. Damani and Real President Sharran Srivatsaa will also showcase Leo 2.0, the enhanced version of the company’s first-to-market GPT-powered 24/7 agent concierge.
“Real estate has been a manual, relationship-driven business for a very long time. But we are upon a new frontier where the consumer is way ahead of the industry on many fronts,” said Sharran Srivatsaa, President of Real. “We are committed to combining the core human element of the business with the agent in the center while introducing cutting-edge tools to help agents and consumers have an elegant and seamless experience.”
One Real Consumer App
The One Real app gives agents the ability to invite their clients to get pre-approved for a home mortgage from the palm of their hand. Once pre-approved, a consumer can confidently shop for a home and easily complete the mortgage application process within a matter of minutes within the app.
Once approved, the One Real app, which is available in the App Store for iOS, Google Play for Android and web app, allows a consumer to communicate directly with the Loan Officer and provide any necessary documentation. Additionally, consumers and agents can track the progress of their loan application from start to close, and the app will notify agents when their clients have submitted the application. Through the app, any eligible consumer in one of the 20 states in which One Real Mortgage operates can be approved and cleared to close on a home loan within 14 days.
“As a company at the forefront of innovation in residential real estate, we’ve leveraged cutting-edge technologies, including AI, to transform how our agents operate,” Damani said. “With the launch of our consumer app, we’re streamlining the home buying and selling process for agents and their clients and advancing towards our ultimate vision: a one-stop home buying solution.”
Real is rolling out the next generation of its AI-powered virtual concierge, Leo 2.0. In addition to leveraging Real’s proprietary transaction management platform, reZEN, to answer users’ questions in real time, Real has scaled Leo to not only predict what agents want to know based on their past behavior, but also to anticipate what they need to know based on analysis of similar behavior across Real’s entire user base.
“What we’ve developed taps into the power of every interaction across our 12,000+ user base,” said Andrei Vazhnov, Vice President of Product Architecture. “We can leverage AI technologies to answer natural language questions as well as suggest relevant information and actions users should take to keep the process moving. Even when a user doesn’t realize what comes next, we like to say: Leo already knows.”
