Alex and Cleo met on OkCupid and got married two years later. Through their own struggles finding an apartment, together with their mutual passion for real estate, they wanted to make apartment hunting better for renters. After many conversations with renters, property managers, and real estate agents, they realized that the problem with finding an apartment goes much deeper, to those who hold the keys to the apartments.
Working with talented tech cofounders, they are designing a platform that aims to help real estate agents become the best that they could be at their jobs. They believe that more effective agents will result in happier renters.

It’s OK to fail
