Every few months we have a company outing where we rent out a space for the team. In the past we've done bowling, VR, and pool outings. Food and drinks are provided and everyone has a great time.



What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Predicting the market value of multifamily properties is the biggest issue we're working on. We've built one of the first true automated valuation models for the multifamily real estate industry, and we're continuing to refine and improve on it with new techniques and data sources.
