We are pleased to announce Steven Gabel as Obligo’s Vice President of Customer Success. Gabel’s decades of experience and relationships in residential real estate make him an ideal partner for properties looking to simplify their rental experience.
Gabel, a proptech veteran, has spent his entire 17-year career in the real estate industry, with an emphasis on the rental market at RealPage, On-Site and Cantor & Pecorella. At On-Site, Gabel helped grow its revenue by approximately 400% during his tenure.
“Steve brings his years of experience in the rental market at a critical time,” said Omri Dor, co-founder and COO at Obligo. “With rising interest rates, the volume of property acquisitions is decreasing, leading landlords and property managers to focus on simplifying operations and increasing NOI for their existing properties. As a result, we’re seeing elevated demand for Obligo’s solutions. Steve’s industry knowledge will be pivotal in our efforts to change the way the landlord-tenant relationship works.”
Obligo’s holistic product suite powers a trusted and streamlined rental experience that benefits renters, property managers and owners. Using Open Banking data and AI, Obligo determines a renter’s eligibility to rent deposit-free. Renters then use Obligo’s digital flow to make their move-in payments, including a traditional security deposit, if needed. At move-out, Obligo handles any end-of-lease deductions, refunding of deposits, and billing the renter for any open charges. Obligo’s products can be used stand alone, or be embedded into other software flows via API for a more seamless experience.
“Obligo is in a unique position to connect property owners, managers and renters,” Gabel said. “We’re dedicated to building trust between these parties through outstanding technology and customer service, so every day we listen to our partners closely, understand their joys and pains, in order to help them succeed in creating a better rental experience.”
Obligo is home to folks who are not afraid to disrupt the way things have always been done. In the heart of New York City and on the beachfront of Tel Aviv, the company is building the renting experience of the future with financial technology. Learn more about our career opportunities.
