Rental Chatter is a centralized database of rental communities in Greenville, SC that will be searchable based on human interests. Have you ever moved to a new city? Do you remember the overwhelming list of apartments that fit your basic criteria? But all you really wanted to know is “where do people like me live”? Rental Chatter was created to answer that question. Traditional rental search engines using basic criteria, such as number of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc, do a good job of giving you the “what”, but fail to deliver the most important information, the “why”. The why is the human element, telling you where people that share your common interest are living.
Rental Chatter is a Greenville company founded by sisters, Annie Parker and Amy Bolli. Each share a passion for helping people in their community and have experienced firsthand the need for a service like Rental Chatter. In their own words:
“I have spent many years in the real estate industry as an agent and now helping with our family real estate company. My experience has taught me that there is no great website to send newcomers to Greenville who want to rent. Sure, there are hundreds of apartment search websites, but other than basic information, they really are not very useful. No one ever asked me where they can rent a great 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment. Instead they asked, where can I rent a great 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment…where people who share my interest live. That’s where the idea of Rental Chatter was born. Amy and I said, let’s create a site to help people find community, not just an apartment.” – Annie Parker, Co-Founder
