Hi! We’re Alex and Mads – the founders of Rent Hero. If you’re reading this you’re probably curious about who we are and if we’re the right guys to help you out. A good question! So let’s tell you a bit about ourselves.
Mads: Hi there, I’m the guy on the left. I spent 5 years studying law at Copenhagen University and my job is to make sure, that your case is air-tight and that we get you fair compensation. Through my work at the Danish Military, I helped wounded veterans get proper compensation and learned first-hand how people who don’t know the law often times get a bad deal. Sounds familiar?
Alex: I’m the guy on the right. I’ve been an entrepreneur for the past nine years and have primarily been working in the real estate industry. Many of the companies still exist today and I take what I do very seriously. The reason Rent Hero was founded, was due to the fact that I was looking for a rental apartment in Copenhagen and got told I couldn’t go to a viewing of an apartment because I wasn’t an expat. This made me curious and I found out, that’s because many Landlords only wants expats because they can overcharge for their rent-controlled housing.
It’s important to enforce a regulated market if we want to keep affordable housing in our cities – both for people renting and buying. In an unregulated market, there is only one winner: the large corporations. If you believe the same, then sign up to our service and let’s have chat about how we can help you out.
