BOSTON -(BUSINESS WIRE) – Tour24, developer of the award-winning mobile app offering renters an easy way to tour apartments and empowering leasing teams to seamlessly manage tours, today announced it has been selected as the self-guided tour partner for Case & Associates Properties, Inc., and has appointed multifamily and student housing veteran Erik Sumwalt as Vice President of Product. The Tour24 platform will deploy across all Case & Associates communities, representing more than 30,000 units across six states.

Working with Tour24 will reshape the way Case & Associates serves our existing and future residents and how fast we can lease up a property and focus on customer service.”
Georgianna W. Oliver, Founder and CEO of Tour24, says, “We are thrilled to partner with a company like Case & Associates. Truly the market leader in the midwest, Case has redefined multifamily and commercial property management with a unique vision based on family values and superior customer service. Their luxury properties are a valuable showcase for the Tour24 product. Their faith in our platform is proof that Tour24 is the right way to go for leasing and property tours.
As Tour24 establishes new partnerships, they are also inviting industry veterans onto the elite leadership team. To that end, Tour24 welcomes Erik Sumwalt as its new VP of Product. Erik is joining Tour24 from a position managing Greystar’s owned asset software and product platform, and he boasts 17 years of experience in the real estate business, where he has managed over $1.2 billion in assets in Texas and New Brunswick, New Jersey. Erik has extensive experience working in both multifamily and student housing and his perspective will be invaluable to Tour24 moving forward.
“I am incredibly humbled and excited to join the excellent Tour24 team at this point in its growth. Tour24 stands alone as the leader in self-guided tours, and is helping to transform the real estate industry,” said Sumwalt. “With ever-changing labor markets, ongoing legislative concerns, and the evolving needs of today’s prospects and employees, there has never been a better time to disrupt the traditional leasing journey.”
