Play • 28 min

“I think the next generation of the marketplaces are going to be full stack where you don't just do marketing, you actually help the renter and landlord through the entire transaction on one platform.” – Anthemos Georgiades (21:33)

The real-world experience of queuing up for access to university housing, inspired Anthemos Georgiades, Co-Founder and CEO at Zumper to ask: 

“Why can't I book a 12-month lease online? Why do I have to go in person?”

Fast forward a few years to the birth of Zumper, which aims to make renting an apartment as easy as booking a hotel. 

Mitch sits down with Anthemos to discuss its acquisition of PadMapper, the similarities and differences between the US and Canadian rental market, as well as the impact of COVID on rent rates, and Zumper’s cutting edge solution “Instarent”.

What we talked about:

  • Zumper's business model and its future
  • The impact of COVID-19 on the rental market 
  • The importance of new technologies in the rental industry
