FORT COLLINS -- Turbo Tenant,  a free software tool for landlords and property managers, announced it is expanding nationally from its Northern Colorado roots.Turbo_Tenant_logoUSE

To celebrate the national launch, Turbo Tenant founder and CEO Sarnen Steinbarth will be visiting local real estate offices handing out flyers and $1 bills – representing the first dollar in savings for new users, the company said.

“We wanted to do a twist on traditional marketing by spreading the word about our company and giving away a little cash at the same time,” Steinbarth said.

Launched in November, Turbo Tenant helps landlords and property managers market properties, accept online applications, screen tenants and collect rent payments online.

The services are free for landlords and property managers with tenants paying a small application fee, the company said.

“The rental leasing process should be simple and painless, and until now it hasn’t been for either side of the equation,” Steinbarth said. “Landlords had to hassle with paper applications and faxing forms to get credit reports. And potential renters had to supply personal information and pay rent with personal checks in the mail. Turbo Tenant solves that.”

The company said more than 200 landlords representing more than 1,000 rental units have signed with Turbo Tenant since it opened.

Turbo Tenant is headquartered in Old Town Fort Collins in the Galvanize FoCo tech campus, 242 Linden St., and has received venture capital funding from Denver-based investment partners.
