Assessing The Multifamily Technology and Operations Outlook

It's December, which is the time of the year when I have the absolute pleasure of sitting down for 20 in-depth conversations with multifamily executives.

Multifamily Technology: Thankful for Being Wrong

Thanksgiving week is a great time to reflect on what we're grateful for. I've been reflecting on a conversation with the founder of an impressive new multifamily technology company earlier this year.

The Marie Kondo Effect: Thoughts on RealWorld 2023

This week I had the pleasure of attending RealWorld 2023, RealPage's annual user conference in Las Vegas. It was an enjoyable couple of days that at once offered a glimpse of the future of an evolving industry giant and a trip or two down memory lane. I will share my thoughts on both in this article.

The Penny Drops: Generative AI in Multifamily

In the few weeks since this year's AIM conference in early May, I have been reflecting on AI, which was the dominant theme of this year's show. Like many people, I have been tinkering with generative AI since late 2022. Some ideas from the sessions at AIM have changed how I think about this technology, as I will describe in this article.
