[Case Study] Aron Susman | TheSquareFoot

By Kim Howard on Jun 3, 2015

TheSquareFoot is a technology enabled commercial real estate brokerage serving the space needs of businesses across the country. Businesses can search for office space and then connect with TheSquareFoot’s brokerage team to tour spaces, get questions answered, and walk through the leasing process.

Each broker at TheSquareFoot is working with 15-20 clients at any given time so they knew right away they needed a powerful CRM to organize data and keep track of deals. TheSquareFoot has been using Apto since 2013, and I recently had the opportunity to speak with Aron Susman, the company’s Co-founder & Chief Financial Officer, about how Apto is used in their brokerage business.
