As chief technology officer of Orchard, Elijah Meerson builds the tech behind the most stress-free, fair and simple way to buy and sell homes. Meerson, who brings two decades of tech experience to the company, leads Orchard’s engineering, IT, security and data science teams.
One of Orchard’s key launches this year was integrating internal tools that bring together brokerage, mortgage and title via a “deal hub.” This platform, led by Meerson and his team, consolidates the state and workflow of a real estate deal and enables Orchard to follow the whole process. Meerson and Orchard have created a solution that creates a better buying and selling experience for the customer. This hub also creates massive leverage for real estate agents and loan officers, giving them accurate information throughout the homebuying process and automating the back office. This year, Meerson’s team launched a fully digital mortgage application product. With the 2022 addition of loans offered directly through Orchard, customers can self-serve via a digital mortgage application to be pre-approved.
