RentSpree, the industry's premier end-to-end rental management software provider, today announced the release of its brand new subscription service, RentSpree PRO. PRO bundles transaction and marketing tools for agents that help streamline the entire rental process. With existing home sales continuing to fall in a rising interest rate environment, the focus has shifted to the rental market and these new tools support its steep increase in competition.
PRO combines existing transactional capabilities in RentSpree's offering, such as RentSpree's award-winning online rental application and tenant screening, with brand new tools to ensure RentSpree is a one stop shop for agents and their rental clients alike.
"We are constantly pushing ourselves to develop better solutions within the rental process to cut down on wasted time and other pain points," said Michael Lucarelli, CEO of RentSpree. "We've been diligently working on PRO to up our ability to specifically support agents as they advance their rental process." He added, "PRO will exponentially increase agent efficiency in dealing with rentals, with the ultimate goal of increasing each agent's return on investment."
New tools on PRO will give agents the opportunity to exponentially level-up their business. These tools include:
Document Upload: This feature seamlessly collects necessary documents from rental applicants within one singular platform, eliminating the need to move between multiple solutions to complete a rental transaction. It ensures that transactions are closed faster with less friction.
Reference Checks: Automated reference checks help streamline outreach to potential references. It speeds up the process and assists agents in finding the right applicant for a rental.
E-Sign Documents: The rental/lease agreement stage is one of the most important, tedious and drawn-out procedures of the rental transaction process. PRO alleviates the need for agents and landlords to perform manual tasks like sending lease agreements via print, scan, email, or other tools outside of their current solution. It helps execute and securely store lease agreements smoothly.
Agent Reviews: A high volume of positive reviews from past clients can be displayed and easily shared with an agent's network. Agents will be able to prompt their clients to leave a review, which can be seen by anybody that visits the profile page. The reviews an agent collects can be shared via social media to promote their service and profile on RentSpree.
Custom Link for your Agent Profile Page: Agent Profiles can help generate an online presence and create professional branding opportunities that can increase the likelihood of attracting more business. This feature offers another opportunity for agents to further build on their professional brand with the ability to modify the slug in their Agent Profile Page's URL, offering increased link trust and discoverability of their services. Since these pages are indexable, Google can surface if someone were to be researching a particular agent.
"RentSpree PRO helps me keep all my listings, applications, and supporting documents in one place," said Juan Caba with Velez Realty Corp. "It saves me time vetting the best tenants for my clients and helps me build relationships with future buyers. It's my virtual office."

Dottid, the leading proptech company revolutionizing the commercial real estate (CRE) industry by creating efficiency and revenue growth for asset managers and brokers, formally announces its release of Asset OS. Dottid's proprietary technology, which launched in April 2021, is transforming CRE by integrating workflow and data into one place and consolidating the robust capabilities of multiple platforms, tools, and workflows into one intuitive interface, saving CRE firms valuable time and money.
The CRE industry contributes $2.3 trillion to the U.S. GDP and is responsible for nearly 15.1 million jobs. Due to multiple modern variables including the increasing popularity of remote work, the industry has been impacted by high vacancy rates across the country, with 54.2% of the 1.07 billion square feet of office space currently open for lease, according to CoStar Group, Inc. To stay competitive, real estate companies are adopting more cost-effective strategies and optimizing their processes using technology.
"In order to effectively adapt to the shifts in the massive CRE industry and this period of uncertainty, asset managers and CRE leaders must innovate and leverage technology to unlock new potential and cost-saving opportunities," said Kyle Waldrep, founder and CEO of Dottid. "Dottid is at the forefront of the CRE technology revolution. With Asset OS, asset managers are provided for the very first time with oversight, data transparency, and detailed insights that help them maximize their resources and improve decision-making to grow revenues in any market."

"Dottid allowed us to organize everything in one place, with overall visibility and accountability, and as a result, we were able to perform more efficiently. In only 18 months, Dottid has enabled us to grow our portfolio by 2.5x while still continuing our high level of service without the need for additional personnel."
Key Asset OS Features Include
API Connector: Allows third-party tools like RealtyAds to integrate with Dottid so asset managers can access all their data in one place
Deals: Empowers all members of the team to know each process while remaining adept to deal changes; allows users to set approvals, assign tasks, communicate deadlines, and track relevant financial negotiations with all files and collateral at their fingertips
Capital Projects: Manage construction projects from start to finish entirely in Dottid, including approving bids, setting key milestone dates, tracking project progress, tenant improvement, and collaborating with teams
Dynamic Projections: Gives users the ability to project property performance in a graph that responds to selections of deals in their deal pipeline and upcoming renewals
Property Debt: Upload and keep track of important debt details and critical dates on loans; store essential debt data, like loan balances, interest rate, and maturity dates, so that an entire asset management team is on the same page
Additional features include real-time stacking plan, encumbrance schedules, property activity, inquiries, leasing performance insights, asset visualizations, and more.
In addition to being the first truly all-in-one CRE workflow and asset management platform connecting all critical asset management functions, Dottid is dedicated to protecting customer data. The company never shares, scrubs, or sells data under any circumstances, including a marketplace environment. Dottid's Asset OS customers can be assured that their data is secure, and is only theirs.
