Hall is joined by Travis Farese 0f Real AI. Prior to founding Real AI, Travis had a career in oil and gas services with an engineering and business degree. Travis and his partners then founded a services company. After successfully selling right before the downturn in 2015, he transitioned into commercial real estate.

According to Travis he got into the AI space for commercial real estate because he witnessed a problem. While investing in commercial real estate, he saw how fragmented the acquisitions process was.

In this episode, you’ll learn about the state of AI for commercial real estate, and how AI machine learning is starting to be applied more to residential real estate.

Hall and Travis also discuss the current state of funding. Big tech companies pouring money into data science signals that there’s a big future in this particular field, and that it’s a distinct programming methodology.
