Zenplace, a Bay Area-based property management firm has hired a unique new employee - a robotic real estate agent named Zenny, who works around the clock to help clients find their dream home.
Zenny 'lives' inside of the vacant, for sale homes and waits until a potential client is interested in seeing the property. Those interested are given a special code from Zenplace, which is used to unlock the door. Upon entering, Zenny, the tablet on wheels, will offer a guided tour of the home. In addition, Zenny comes equipped with a live feed of an agent, so people can ask questions a robot may not be able to answer.
With this method, consumers are able to view homes at their convenience, and realtors can avoid the hassles of pre-booking appointments and constant schedule adjustments.
