Digital real estate marketplace DOSS—the creator behind an AI solution that makes transactions easier for buyers, renters, and sellers—has received funding from Amazon's VC arm, the Amazon Alexa fund.

Doss was selected in July to be one of the first startups to take part in the first Black Founders Build, and has received an undisclosed amount to improve its business.

DOSS was chosen after demonstrating the potential value of its conversational AI that provides customers with the ability to speak into their smartphone or Alexa-enabled device to obtain quick and accurate answers to voice requests. Customers can ask for real-estate advice and tips, search for home listings, get neighborhood information, and recent sales data.

Users will also be able to request to be connected with home service providers that serve their respective area in the future.

The company says it will use its funding to further improve what it sees as an antiquated, expensive, and fragmented data environment for the real estate sector.

DOSS was founded in 2016 by Bobby Bryant (CEO) and Chris Norton (COO).
