The startup has helped thousands of people in Denver and Chicago seamlessly find their perfect apartment in the last 18 months.
ATLANTA (Nov. 4, 2019) – Starting this month, Atlantans looking to navigate the city’s increasingly overwhelming number of luxury apartments will find their search easier, faster, and more enjoyable than ever before.
AptAmigo is now servicing in-town Atlanta, after first launching in Chicago and then Denver less than a year ago. In just 18 months, the bootstrapped startup has become the No. 1 apartment locating service in both Chicago and Denver as more than 3,000 renters have used AptAmigo to find their dream luxury apartments.
AptAmigo’s 5-star service is easy—and free—to use. Atlanta apartment hunters simply answer questions about their ideal place and AptAmigo uses those preferences to build a collaborative list of curated buildings for review in their proprietary apartment portal. Once a renter has selected his/her favorite properties, AptAmigo schedules all the tours in one day, accompanies the client to each building, pays for transportation between tours, takes notes throughout the trip and even assists all the way through the application process.
“Atlanta is such a desirable place to live. It’s truly one of the main cultural capitals of the country, and with so much new construction and a constant influx of new residents—we saw an opportunity here to help renters find their ideal apartments by eliminating all the headaches that come with searching,” says Dan Willenborg, CEO and co-founder of AptAmigo. “After personally helping over 100 renters find their dream home, I realized that quality information and excellent customer service are the recipe for renter success. Our Atlanta team members are responsive and helpful, know all the neighborhoods and unique building features, and love sharing that information to ensure anyone looking for an apartment finds the right one for them.”
For anyone relocating to Atlanta, or too busy for in-person visits, AptAmigo also offers virtual tours where a touring agent will visit the properties and share videos from each visit. Currently about 30 percent of people who use AptAmigo in other markets take advantage of the virtual-tour service. AptAmigo also provides important information for residents of Atlanta including the scoop on Downtown vs. Midtown Atlanta and Atlanta’s #1 Neighborhood Guide.
AptAmigo had just launched in its second market, Denver, in fall of 2018. And in the last year, the AptAmigo team has tripled in size, with plans to more than double again in 2020. The Atlanta team currently works out of WeWork in Colony Square, and AptAmigo is hiring for numerous positions locally, including for sales and operations, and touring agents.
