About Us

On the surface, building a great renter experience might not sound hard, but it is. Think about all the things that have to be right: gathering detailed data from millions of apartments of all types; matching those apartments with the millions of renters searching; and communicating with landlords when those renters decide they’ve found their perfect next home.

Getting this right is more important now than ever before. Today there are 100 million renters in the US, more than there have ever been and growing.

Our mission is simple, we want renters to be able to find a great home and we want that process to be simple and delightful. In one word, we want their experience and apartment search to be extraordinary.

The extraordinary experience we are building is loved by renters and landlords. In fact, four million Renters used Apartment List last month, 75% of them on mobile. Each month more and more renters are signing their lease thanks to Apartment List.

We recently just raised $50M in our series C to accelerate our growth - think you’re up to the challenge? Check out the team and learn more about us. If you’re game, apply now.
