Meet Michael Lindman 

National Director – Data & Intelligence (3 years, 4 months at Crexi)

What drew you to Crexi?

I had a background in more traditional finance and real estate investment and am a big believer in SaaS, so Crexi was a natural fit. I like to use the California gold rush philosophy when thinking about Crexi’s potential. The reality of the gold rush is that the wealthiest person to come out of it wasn’t the gold miner but the person who sold denim jeans to the gold miners (Levi Strauss). Crexi can potentially be the Levi Strauss of the real estate world.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

This sounds tacky, but it’s the people we work with daily. We have such a fun, hardworking team, and it’s fantastic to build this company with everyone with whom we’ve surrounded ourselves.

Why were you interested in working with Intelligence?

I love the small start-up world (what Crexi was a few years ago). It’s really special to be a part of something that is small in its current state but has the potential to be HUGE. It also helps that the product is cool, and the addressable market for it is gigantic.

What feedback do you hear from clients about their favorite intelligence features?

The Insights feature can save someone in the acquisitions world 40+ hours, which is fantastic – but I don’t think I can narrow it down to a single feature. What is awesome about the intelligence product is that it is a modern, easy-to-use solution for folks in the real estate community who want to make intelligent decisions at an incredibly affordable rate.

What excites you about the future of Intelligence and how it will evolve?

As Michael Jordan once said, “the ceiling is the roof.” The Intelligence product is incredible, and we have the roadmap to make it the best CRE software on the planet. So the exciting thing about Intelligence is that it will be to go-to real estate software for everything someone needs in CRE. It has the potential to be up there with the biggest names in the tech world.

Describe Crexi in three words

Hardworking, game-changing, fun.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

As anyone who regularly talks to me probably knows, my free time is likely already predetermined between Doug (my boss) and Kailee (my wife). When I’m free, I spend a lot of time at the beach, surfing with the Crexi band, golfing, skiing, and hanging with Telli, my dog.

Meet Athenna Peralta

QA Manager (3 years, 9 months at Crexi) 

What drew you to Crexi?

I was initially drawn to the small team sizes. Joining a smaller company means wearing many hats, and I enjoy working with different teams. I also wanted the opportunity to grow with Crexi. 

What is the most rewarding part of your job? 

The most rewarding part is seeing the growth of my team –both professionally and personally — and the evolution of our processes. 

How have you seen the engineering team grow since you joined? 

Crexi’s engineering team has grown in size and output since I’ve been with the company. With the team’s growth, we’ve also become more diverse, collaborative, and innovative. 

What are your goals for the future of the engineering team? 

Overall, I hope to continue building and championing an engineering culture that values efficiency, inclusion, and collaboration as we grow.

Describe Crexi in three words: 

Dedicated, passionate, responsive.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I enjoy being in the garden and taking care of my plants. I also like to cook. I’m currently learning some Filipino recipes from my mom.
