Andy Young knew exactly what he wanted when he started house-hunting in the spring. The 35-year-old was looking to ditch his North York condo for a larger, detached home with a yard to share with his girlfriend. A frequent user of AI programs like ChatGPT, Young decided to give Wahi — a Toronto-based, tech-enabled real estate brokerage — a try.
He provided his preferred neighbourhood, budget and other parameters to Wahi’s AI-powered algorithm, refreshed the search engine nightly to find new listings, and co-ordinated showings with a roster of Wahi freelance real estate agents, paid hourly to accompany clients to open houses and home visits.
