All right. Well, welcome everyone we are in the finishing stretch of what has been an amazing week year at CREtech. First of all wanted to thank everybody involved with the conference for putting on such an amazing event. I think I'd share everyone's feelings that in the special times as this has really been I think a Shining Light and them in a master class on how to put on events so thanks for that. I am very excited to be joined here with three amazing panelists who I know very well and I'm sure are known very well to most if not all of
the audience tuning in. I will let them introduce themselves in seconds for you or for those of you who don't know me. My name is Rich Sarkis and founded a company called Reonomy about seven or eight years ago, and I'm excited to as I said to be a moderator on the panel and so without further ado. Ash, the man the myth the legend the reason why there's a ten-second delay from what you're actually that you're actually hearing I'll let you introduce yourself. Thanks very much, Rich. My name is Ashkan Zandieh and I am the Founder of a property, tech property company called
PROPERTYIDX and an Advisory Board member at CREtech and Former Founder of Retech which was acquired by CREtech about a year-and-a-half two years ago.
