Our Mission

The place you call home is important and we at Apartment List understand that. Searching for an apartment to call home is hard and it’s an incredibly big decision. The majority of your time is spent at home and it’s your largest monthly expense. We get that.


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

Try It On For Size

Nothing speaks better for our product than... you guessed it... our product.

We Are Different

The experience we provide you is different than any other rental experience out there. It starts from our own experiences - both positive and negative - with finding the perfect home. From the start we get to know you, asking the important questions about YOUR search and what matters most to YOU.

Once we know what you care about, we build a personalized set of recommendations that match both exactly what you asked for and show you the best other options that maybe you hadn’t thought to consider. Our goal, do all the hard work for you and make finding your great next home easy.

And once you’ve found that home, you can count on the pricing, photos and extra amenities to be accurate and verified. Every one of our featured listings was researched and curated by an Apartment List team member and most importantly the pricing and availability is checked multiple times per day, coming directly from property itself.

We’ve worked really hard so your experience renting with Apartment List will be extraordinary.

How We Got Started

Our founders John Kobs and Chris Erickson both have had miserable, horrible, no good, very bad rental experiences. John was introduced to the “bait and switch” by NYC brokers when trying to rent his first apartment out of college and Chris moved 5 times in 5 different cities over the course of 6 years. What became clear to them over this time was how broken the rental search process was. So in September of 2011, they set out to build an experience that would take the pain out of moving and make finding their next home easy.
