Rentals Gone Wild, the District's largest rental property locator, has announced that it is rebranding as Padfinders.com. The new brand will take all of the user-friendliness of the Rentals Gone Wild experience, that has helped over 7,000 people find new rentals, and enhance it by streamlining searches, adding valuable neighborhood information and integrating the ability to speak with a location expert directly on the phone about the over 50,000 rental units listed on the site.
For years, recent graduates, families and executives of many of the metro area's top employers, including Deloitte, Lockheed Martin and the Department of the Interior, have turned to Padfinders.com as a reliable source for stress-free apartment rental services.
Preparing to move can feel like a full time job. According to a survey conducted by Padfinders.com, new renters feel overwhelmed by the abundance of impersonal websites, rental listings and potential scams online when searching for a new apartment.
"Moving is stressful, especially when you're moving to a new city or have a hectic schedule," said Blake Van Leer, co-founder of Padfinders.com. "Our Padfinders live locally, so they're experts in identifying the neighborhood that fits your lifestyle. Padfinder reps learn about your needs and sift through all of your options saving you time and unnecessary frustration. And, of course, this service is free to the renter."
"As an apartment locator, we act as matchmakers connecting renters with places they love. Our goal with the new design, new logo and new name is to articulate that message clearly and concisely," says co-founder Lindsay Van Leer.
The decision to rebrand comes in advance of "a national expansion with innovative corporate partnerships in the near future, making this was the perfect time for a rebrand," Van Leer added.
Padfinders.com is a free apartment location service based in Washington, DC. The company strives to take the stress out of the moving process while helping find the rental unit to best fit their lifestyle. For more information, please visit www.padfinders.com.
