Who We Are

By adopting cutting-edge technology, we offer an unmatched service of screening and accessing tenants to help landlords protect their property and make informed rental decisions.


Core Values

Trust, Simplicity, Speed, Excellence, and Customer satisfaction are the main values behind what we do.



Our screening process generates a report which aggregates information obtained from different sources that gives a clearer picture of prospective tenants.



Our system prioritizes time in assessment and screenings. Our assessment begins immediately after you compute all the required information on our system. Your tenant report will be delivered to your mail in 5-7 days. You’ll be informed if there’ll be delay in your report delivery.



Leaving no stone unturned, we adopt all available tools to assess your tenant’s rent history and financial credibility. Our system provides ALL necessary information about your Tenant’s database to enable you make smart rental decisions.



Our process is quite simple for anyone: beginning with account setup for landlord and property managers or tenants, then property registration, down to tenant screening or tenant assessment. You can also edit uploaded information by following simple and clear messages on the platform.
