The segment will also delve into the upcoming trends hitting the market, such as massive technology refinements taking place in preparation of 5G connectivity.

“Mobile technology anticipates unprecedented momentum with the introduction of 5G,” Kirby explained. “Smart home technology will advance with an expanded IoT network, and the continual improvement of machine learning will progress our means of communication with prospects and residents alike. With all of these changes, our next-generation, mobile renter is proving to significantly affect how we market, transact, and interact online.”

Joining Kirby is property management expert, Ernest F. Oriente of PowerHour, an industry professional since 1988 and the author of SmartMatch Alliances.
