Creating a Win-Win Experience When Selling to Investor-Buyers And Property Managers That Has Never Been Done - Or Tried - Before!
I have built Renturly to satisfy a need I identified in the online real estate industry, after being a mortgage broker and real estate investor.
I attended one of those weekend Rich Dad seminars and then went through one of Guy's real estate investing courses and received personal coaching. I acquired my first rental property with a friend and the backing of an experienced local investor, shortly after.
I spent the next few years studying information systems in business school, while my friend that took that rich dad course with me carried on acquiring property. It was a real test of character for me deciding to finish my degree while I saw how my friend's commitment was paying off already. Boy was I glad that I stuck with my studies in the end, because it was in the final capstone courses where I acquired all of the skills that I would need to create real efficiencies in any business and industry through technology!
After graduation, I improved my programming skills while spending a lot of time researching startups and brainstorming business models. I thought, wouldn't it be amazing to apply my knowledge from school with my experience of investing in real estate to create something extremely innovative, that could create extreme efficiencies in the real estate industry, and that could scale in serving society?
It was a real holy-cow moment when I came up with the idea to build something I already know a lot about! I had to call-up my friend from real estate investing and pitch the idea to him. I knew this was it when, after the pitch, I asked him, so you think this could work? He spent the next few hours with me word vomiting over all the benefits this would have for everyone in the industry and what product features he would love to see!
I then proceeded with development, while trying to release the first product as quickly as possible so that I could get feedback from real people, like you!
I annoyed family and friends for weeks brainstorming names, before choosing Renturly. There must have been a few thousand names we went through! The entire story behind the name is why I knew Renturly and The Urly Bird were the right choices. Independent investors are motivated to get that deal! They are Urly birds! They have a drive to create a brighter future for themselves and their families! Not to mention, The Urly Bird is the cutest mascot in history!
