TurboTenant attracts $1.5 mln

Fort Collins, Colorado-based TurboTenant, a provider of online solutions for residential landlords, has secured $1.5 million in funding. FrontRange Capital Partners LLC led the round.



TurboTenant, one of the fastest growing companies offering online solutions that help residential landlords save time and improve the performance of their rental properties, recently raised $1.5 million in growth capital from an investor group led by FrontRange Capital Partners, LLC, a Denver-based private equity firm focused on investments in real estate and high growth companies. TurboTenant, which offers its products at no charge to landlords, will use the capital raised to grow the brand by adding additional landlord clients, broadening its suite of products, and expanding its management team and board of advisors to secure its position as the leader in the free landlord software market.

“TurboTenant is helping independent landlords drive revenue and performance by greatly simplifying the way they rent and manage their properties. The response from landlords has been tremendous,” says Sarnen Steinbarth, Founder / CEO of TurboTenant. “We launched just one year ago and already have added more than 30,000 landlords to our platform—and we continue to grow at over 10% per month due to the tremendous value landlords see in our products. This round of funding allows us to accelerate our growth and expand our suite of products to keep up with the demands of our growing customer base and help our independent residential landlords better compete with the large institutional operators.”

“We are pleased to lead this $1.5 million growth financing round to help build on the tremendous product offering Sarnen and his team have developed with the backing of Crescendo Capital Partners. Our goal is to provide TurboTenant with the financial and human capital support they need to further accelerate their growth,” said David Robertson, CEO of FrontRange Capital Partners.

TurboTenant launched in early 2016 and received early seed financing from Crescendo Capital Partners. Joining Steinbarth and Mark Hopkins (Founder of Crescendo Capital Partners) on the TurboTenant board will be Glenn Russo (former President of Zayo Group), David Robertson (CEO of FrontRange Capital Partners), and FrontRange investors David Prokupek (former CEO of Smashburger and Jackson Hewitt) and Chuck Davis (CEO of Swagbucks and former CEO of Fandango and Shopzilla).
