Showdigs, a Seattle, Washington-based online platform that streamlines the process of rental showings for consumers and property managers, has announced it closed $3 million in seed funding led by Trilogy Equity Partners. Trilogy managing director Amy McCullough is joining Showdigs’ board of directors in conjunction with this funding round.
Showdigs’ platform enables rental prospects to automatically schedule property tours at their convenience with a trusted broker, thus eliminating existing challenges in scheduling and providing the same benefits of self-showing without the downsides.
“Today’s online consumer has become accustomed to immediate gratification and a personalized experience. Unfortunately, the process of scheduling tours of rental properties has failed to keep pace and remains frustrating for both consumers and property managers alike,” said Showdigs founder and CEO Kobi Bensimon in a statement. “Showdigs transforms the property management market by combining integrated mobile technology with professional brokers, enabling property managers to vastly improve the experience of prospects while managing their business at a higher scale.”
Bensimon used to be the co-founder and CEO of apartment resident portal company ActiveBuilding (acquired by RealPage in 2013). Plus Bensimon was also an investor and board member for LifeLoop and Lineups.io.
“Our investment philosophy is focused on identifying both unique market opportunities that are ripe for technological innovation and the exceptional entrepreneurs behind them,” added McCullough. “Showdigs provides an intuitive, in-demand solution for renters while simultaneously enabling busy property managers to run their business with increased efficiency. Kobi is a tremendous entrepreneur who we’ve known for many years and are thrilled to partner with him and the entire Showdigs team as they make their mark in the PropTech space.”
