Alex the Alpacabot: a virtual real estate agent

Meet the Assistant

Alex, the Alpaca chatbot, makes the dread of apartment hunting a thing of the past. Alex is a virtual real estate agent that's free to use, available 24/7, and literally at the user's fingertips.

Alex matches users with apartments based on their preferences, to create a unique curated list. The chatbot filters through thousands of listings and helps the user request viewings, either remote or in person. Currently, Alpaca can help users find a home in New York City, Boston, and the San Francisco Bay area.

Using Alex is as easy as opening an app. Users can start a conversation with Alex on Facebook Messenger, where they're taken through a step-by-step search to narrow down the "perfect apartment" pool. Users can also type in specific search inquiries to fit particular needs.

After all the parameters have been specified, Alex goes to work. The result is a list of apartments that fit the user's preferences, as well as valuable information like pictures, videos, and location.

The bot's secret weapon is called Alex's Alpaca Insights, which provides market information like rental breakdown, lease incentives, and brokers' fees. Users never have to worry about those hidden fees gumming up apartment hunting ever again.
