My name is Kirby Sommers and I created LandlordLinks.Net in 2006.

The goal is to help you rent the best possible aparmtment at the best possible price and to help you have a transparent rental transaction. Brokers don’t do this. Landlords don’t either. But we do. I do.

Back in 2005 I became involved in a large volunteer effort to help displaced Hurricane Katrina survivors. You can read a New York Times article about that here. It changed my life forever. I realized I could help renters in New York (and soon in other cities/states) the same way we helped Katrina survivors find new homes across the United States.

My staff.

The people who help me run LandlordLinks.Net and our sister company, AptStar, are Hurricane Katrina survivors. They work from home in the various different states and cities where they relocated many years ago. Some of them know more about New York than they do about their home town. All of them think the rents in New York are crazy silly.

But enough about us – let’s talk about you.

You have kept us in business for well over one decade and we always value your input. Many of you use the Landlord Links e-guides to find rentals with larger landlords/management companies. And for smaller landlords you usually come to me for my personalized help through AptStar (which now has its own website here).

But you wanted more. Direct access to smaller landlords and a place to share your own rental needs.

And we heard you loud and clear.

We are now accepting posts from smaller landlords. The ones no one knows about but everyone loves. Oh, and you can now post your own ad. The end goal has remained the same: we want to make the rental process less complicated so you can save money and focus on your job and your life.

Renting made easy. Since 2006.

Landlord Links helped me find a place I would not have found using traditional online channels.

Landlord Links helped us avoid following defunct Trulia links to predatory brokers. Incredibly useful.

Hey Kirby I just wanted to check in and say THANK YOU for your awesome service! We’re still in the same apartment you found for us in 2012 but are going to move so this time I ordered five of your Landlord Links.
