How I Started

Originally, a group of friends and colleagues hacked together a version 1.0. Four years later, we now have a team of engineers, data scientists, and management in place.

How I Built This

Rentlogic uses verified, city-issued data for multifamily buildings to give renters a fair comparison of overall quality as they navigate the rental market. Finding a place to rent is no simple task, and buildings are not always what they seem. In the spirit of social good, Rentlogic uses an algorithm to grade buildings on a scale of A, B, C and F, so renters know a building’s history and how responsive the landlord has been. This objective evaluation also helps landlords, too many of which get a bad rap despite being responsible property owners.
