It all started on OkCupid...

Alex and Cleo met on OkCupid and got married two years later. After meeting other couples who also got married to their digital soulmates, they became convinced there’s something to this whole matching business. Working with talented tech cofounders, they are bringing this matching idea into their mutual passion - real estate - and using their analytical skills to help New Yorkers find homes.

We believe that home is one of the most intimate things to a person, yet finding a home in NYC can be one of the most dehumanizing experiences. With REMY, our mission is to make finding an apartment less stressful and more transparent. In the process, we hope to make the NYC apartment search a bit more bearable, intelligent, ... and dare-say, even fun!
