Doorstead’s mission is to give property owners and tenants true peace of mind. We believe in transparency and in building long-term relationships with our customers. We have skin in the game with our rental guarantee.
The founders, Ryan Waliany, a technology-operations expert from Uber, and Jennifer Bronzo, a tech entrepreneur who grew up managing properties for her family’s construction company, started Doorstead to create a new class of property management.
After speaking to customers, they heard numerous stories of everyday people who were over-promised rents, incurred months of vacancies, and had to sell their properties because they couldn’t pay their bills. Worse, these vacancies were entirely preventable and unnecessary in hot markets like San Francisco and Seattle, and they soon found out that property-management incumbents have a 43-day vacancy average which approximates to $86B annually in economic waste in the U.S. alone.
Inspired by customer-focused companies like Zappos, the founders set out to create a new class of property management with an upfront service guarantee using data science and technology operations. They were joined by a talented set of individuals from DoorDash, Dropbox, and Goldman Sachs to round out the founding team.
