Kristian Hill was fed up with the issues and headaches caused by the rental property market. That’s when she came up with RentFo, her amazing app idea, to help people like herself avoid the rental headaches once and for all.
Hill, originally from SoCal, moved to the Bay area 11 years ago and began working in the property management industry.
When she’s not working she enjoys being a mom, wife, and chef extraordinaire who loves getting down in the kitchen.
But how did Hill go from having an amazing app idea to app inventor?
We recently talked with Hill to get the behind the scenes story of how her idea was born.
Hill explained how the idea for RentFo came about:
I was renting a home while living there (Bay Area). There were a lot of issues with the home. Just one thing after another these issues kept coming. But the kicker was, the landlord knew about all of the issues and they’ve been happening for over 10+years! So as I laid in my bed one night, I thought, I wish there was an app or website that people could use to review a rental before they signed a lease. This way everyone could know what they’re getting into before and it would hold the landlord accountable to make the needed repairs.”
Hill took her knowledge of the property management industry as well as her frustrations with the rental process and looked to improve it for herself and others.
Almost everyone has or knows someone who has experienced a rental property nightmare. They’re a pain to deal with, but fortunately now there’s RentFo.
RentFo app goes beyond the usual 3 bedroom, 2 bath, hardwood floor, and great neighborhood rental review.
RentFo allows users to write a review of an individually owned home they’ve rented for all to see. Users are not rating the landlord or property management company, but the actual property itself.
Hill solved a problem many people before her have experienced, but had no way to avoid.
Fortunately, Hill found BrainyApps and we were able to help her turn her app idea to reality.
After the thought of an app consumed me, my husband suggested I look further into it. I researched some app developers and came across BrainyApps. After speaking with Ed, I knew BrainyApps was the perfect fit! I’ve been pleased with the entire process from beginning to end and couldn’t be happier.”
Another amazing app idea turned reality with RentFo.
