RentHop - Smarter Apartment Search
We want to simplify your apartment search.

Apartment hunting can be overwhelming, but we realized that finding a new home isn't about looking at every apartment listing, it's about looking at the best ones. Quality, not quantity.

With the powers of math and technology combined, we created RentHop, a site that sorts listings by quality. We know you don't want to see listings without photos or from unresponsive landlords and brokers, so unlike other sites that only sort by price or posting date, our HopScore (a sophisticated set of algorithms) ranks apartment listings by quality, so only the best rise to the top.

We currently serve most major U.S. cities.
Our team
Lee Lin, Cofounder
Lee is a data geek from MIT who spent years at quantitative hedge funds cranking out models to explain and predict financial markets. Real estate has always been a big part of Lee's life. He grew up helping out at his parents' Jersey Shore motels, became a landlord his first year out of college, analyzed mortgages on a fixed-income trading desk, and acquired a New York real estate license. At RentHop, he combines his nerd talents and real estate knowledge to constantly tweak the secret HopScore. He currently lives near Bryant Park and his favorite restaurant is Cafe Zaiya.
Li Zhou, Cofounder
While Li graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Electrical Engineering, he's dropped his Fourier transforms to tackle the world of startups and real estate. Straight out of college, he worked as a commercial real-estate analyst at a major investment bank. After an extremely stressful renting experience during the inflation scare of 2008, he laid the groundwork for RentHop with Lee. At RentHop, he codes and drinks copious amounts of caffeine. He lives in Hell's Kitchen and couldn't live without Lenny's salads and Dunkin Donuts coffee.
Justin Dell'aglio, Operations Manager
Justin brings a background in finance and sales to RentHop. He graduated from Boston University and worked as a financial planner at two major financial services firms. Now Justin is responsible for helping renters and property managers use RentHop to find and rent great apartments (renters) and find and attract great renters ( property managers). He lives in the Bronx and is extremely good at volleyball. Justin is also a graduate of Startup Institute New York.
