The Tour24 platform will be deployed across all AMLI residential communities, representing more than 25,000 units in nine cities.
“Today’s residents require instant interaction, and they aren’t willing to wait to schedule tours or sign leases,” said Amanda Johnson, Vice President of Marketing at AMLI. “Tour24 has identified and solved a critical problem in the multifamily industry by allowing people to schedule tours within minutes – at times that work for them. Partnering together will radically improve AMLI’s ability to provide excellent customer experiences and increase the speed of getting people into our properties. We are committed to building the ‘AMLI FAMLI,’ and Tour24 gives us a massive advantage from the very first time a prospect reaches out to us.”

David has the leadership skills and executive experience to facilitate expansion in 2023. Cohen most recently held the position of Director of Operations and Finance at The Vilna Shul, a Boston-based nonprofit center for Jewish arts and culture, where he professionalized the fast growing nonprofit organization.
