About Nick

Hi. During more than 20 years as a TV producer I got heavily involved in real estate, first investing in income properties, then as an agent. My experiences revealed an opportunity to meet an unmet need in the residential and commercial rental market.

There are many online resources for LISTING vacancies. My company KeyPads helps landlords and property managers rent these properties more quickly, by allowing renters to TOUR the vacancies ON DEMAND. I have a special strategy, based on my experience as a Realtor to achieve this.

KeyPads will be a paid service for Landlords, Property Management companies, and for Renters making on-demand tour requests. I'm currently in a pre-startup incubator at Founders Institute and my goal upon completion is to pitch the idea to raise seed investment create the MVP and launch to test the model as we continue to develop.

I'm looking for a CTO, preferably with experience on platforms like Redfin, Zillow, RadPads, etc. Ours is a 2-sided market that depends on getting Listings, and those listings will attract rental users. Thanks for your interest. I look forward to connecting with you to share more!
