Real Estate Technology, Mortgage and Lending
PRnewswire | August 01, 2023
Clever Real Estate, the fast-growing real estate technology company, has launched Clever Pro, a new all-in-one solution that empowers mortgage lenders to drive higher profits and provide more value to borrowers.
Clever Pro will initially consist of five fully-integrated products that deliver the data, insights, and relationships lenders need to maximize performance and drive sustainable growth:
Pro Convert helps lenders boost conversion rates with less work and no added cost. Clever matches borrowers with top 1% Realtors from its industry-leading network of 19,000 agents. Clever's Lender-Certified Agents work with the loan officer to deliver a superior customer experience, increasing close rates and revenue per lead.
Pro Connect gives lenders more control over their entire pipeline. Clever captures real-time status updates and feedback from all parties so loan officers are more efficient and responsive. This information is prioritized in Clever's Loan Officer Portal and the lender's CRM, so nothing slips through the cracks.
Pro Search lets borrowers browse homes, get listing alerts, and schedule viewings entirely within the lender's branded ecosystem. This gives loan officers better visibility while keeping them, and their key value props, top of mind for clients across their home shopping journey.
Pro Insights surfaces real-time loan officer performance data to help teams identify what's working and what needs to improve. Fully-configurable dashboards let lenders monitor KPIs in real-time for better campaign forecasting, as well as targeted sales coaching and lead routing.
Pro Amplify turns every win into high-impact marketing collateral that helps lenders generate more business. Every closing and piece of positive feedback is repackaged into personalized (and compliant) content loan officers can share on social media to boost their brand.
"Our team has built something truly groundbreaking," said Tony Chahal, SVP of Clever Pro. "Clever Pro solves so many longstanding problems for lenders that hinder profitability and growth. We're giving them trusted partners in every market nationwide, plus technology to manage the entire buyer journey, all within a single unified ecosystem. And we're just getting started — more features are already on the way!"
Clever Pro arrives hot on the heels of Clever's latest funding round, in which it raised an additional $2 million from strategic investors, including Cultivation Capital, EssentVentures LLC, and real estate tech strategist Mike DelPrete. Clever was recently named the number-one real estate company on Trustpilot and one of the fastest-growing companies in the Midwest by Inc.com.

By connecting Pereview's in-depth asset data to Juniper Square, joint clients can seamlessly share both asset-level and portfolio insights to improve fundraising efficiency and provide LPs with greater transparency.
"Juniper Square and Pereview's combined offering provides a best-of-breed solution for fundraising and investor relations teams within leading GP organizations," says Matt Lawson, CMO at Juniper Square. "Until now, these groups have had to compile data from countless different sources just to get a comprehensive and clear picture of their investments. Our partnership with Pereview will change the status quo, allowing GPs to get a comprehensive and clear picture of their CRE assets and deliver it seamlessly to LPs through Juniper Square's partnership enablement platform."
As a slower adopter of digital technologies, the commercial real estate industry has finally reached a tipping point. With Juniper Square's roots in investment management and Pereview's expertise in providing detailed reporting across the entire investment lifecycle from acquisition to disposition, these complementary strengths address the ever-growing need for timely, in-depth reporting. All data in the capital stack, from the investor to the fund to the investment to the portfolio to the asset to the property to the lease will be readily available for mutual clients.
"Our partnership with Juniper Square provides a best-of-breed, full-stack solution for the marketplace with a custom integration built exclusively for our current and future mutual clients," said Daryl Pitts, senior vice president of global sales for Pereview. "Where Juniper Square is strong in the processes around raising the fund and investor relations, Pereview provides complementary strengths in comprehensive, globally compliant data aggregation and reporting to equip asset, portfolio, and fund management professionals with the 360 view they need to make data-driven decisions."

We now spend more time doing deeper investment analysis allowing us to drive value creation across our portfolio versus spending time updating many Excel files to answer the same set of questions over and over again. Pereview and Juniper Square have been a game changer for us. We've been able to support the growth of our platform and materially increase portfolio analytics capacity without having to grow the team significantly."
