I’m very happy to announce that Dynasty, the startup I’ve been with for almost two years, was acquired by AppFolio this past Tuesday! I’ll be joining AppFolio as Director of Research for LISA, and continue building out the product.

We tackled the problem of real estate leasing logistics and came up with LISA, a novel system that replaces time-consuming and error-prone parts of a property manager’s leasing operations with artificial intelligence components. We put extra emphasis on the seamless handoff between human and AI.

We found product market fit for LISA in a short time thanks to an amazing team (Elliott, Rob, Kyle, DC, John, and others). And with the acquisition by AppFolio, scaling our solution will come much sooner!
