Hello Alfred, the leading residential experience company, today announced it has acquired the building management technology platform, Bixby, as of today’s date. The acquisition includes Bixby’s assets, team, and customers, and will operate under the Hello Alfred brand. This deal expands Hello Alfred’s footprint, dramatically increasing their volume in Class B multifamily buildings with the potential to bring their anticipatory help and local services to a roster of different property types.
Founded in 2016 by entrepreneur Mark Smukler and real estate developer Alex Ohebshalom, Bixby was originally designed as a mobile app that would modernize and digitize Mr. Ohebshalom’s family property management business. Since then, Bixby has evolved into a cloud-based set of tools and services that enable commercial and residential property management teams around the world to provide tenants and residents with a connected, efficient and sustainable building experience.
