For about the last 5 1/2 years, Lisa Fettner has proven to be an industry leader as she's taken charge in the marketing and growth at ReferralExchange. ReferralExchange provides a platform that allows real estate agents to more seamlessly transfer and better manage referrals—anywhere in the country. Think about when a client is relocating out of state or they're looking to purchase a property out of state, the old system of having to know everyone, everywhere just isn't efficient for agents and that can lead to a poor experience for the consumer. ReferralExchange has a great approach to what they're doing and Lisa really knows the industry well. Listen in!
The security deposit is one of the biggest hassles in all of real estate. The tenant is required to sometimes tie up thousands of dollars to move into a new apartment or house, the landlord has to secure that money in a separate trust account, and then at the end of the lease the landlord has to return that money back to the tenant. But often times the exchange doesn't go as smoothly as planned. Obligo is challenging the concept of even having a security deposit at all and instead looking into how both landlords and tenants can kiss that practice goodbye for ever in exchange for a more seamless system. During this interview Omri Dor, CEO and Co-Founder of Obligo, explains exactly how they're tackling this challenge and why this is so important for everyone involved in the rental transaction.
