About Cliff

67% of Boston and over 50% of the population in major US metro markets rent vs own. Over 70% of renters are under age 30. The convergence of trends in collaborative consumption, housing collapse, and the largest youth population since the Boomers led Morgan Stanley Research to assert that, "the beginning of the rentership society is upon us." Yet the process of connecting renters with owners remains fraught with inefficiencies, outdated agent-based gatekeeper frameworks, and implicit housing discrimination.

A more transparent approach to connecting renters and owners begins with creating a common platform for rental history to be tracked and shared. I want to build that platform and I need a technical cofounder as passionate as I am about this mission to help me do it.

I bring over 10 years of first-hand experience in leasing over $1 million in real estate holdings, a strong knack for marketing/branding, and enough technical aptitude to appreciate the challenges created in the space between code and conception. Let's build a strong team, around simple ideas, that will transform a multi-million dollar industry.
