A new era of property management has begun in multifamily. Robots are now helping building owners lease residences. San Francisco-based Zenplace, a tech-centric property management company, recently launched an army of robots to provide guided property tours. “We set out to change the property management and rental experience by providing property owners and tenants a faster and easier way to rent and lease,” Zenplace CEO Rahul Mewawalla said. Prospective renters can set up tours and apply for units via Zenplace’s online platform. They then receive a code that can be used to enter the units using smart locks. A robot, guided by a licensed agent, will greet them at the door to show them around the unit. Through the robot, the agent also can show them videos of nearby schools, parks and other amenities as well as provide rental comparisons.
