RentSlam came into existence out of personal frustrations with the rental market. Our friend and colleague Peter van den Hout developed a tool to help him find a house fast. It worked great, and so the idea to help others was born. We (Peter de Vreede and Raul Amedey) have grown the initial tool into a platform that really helps people find and offer housing for rent. Now we successfully help hundreds of people every month.
If you are interested in knowing more about current developments, would like to contribute in any way or just want to have a cup of coffee with us, please reach out below!

Peter studied International Management in Amsterdam and has worked at several multinational companies in sales and consulting roles. He spent lots of time abroad in many different cities for studies and work. But what lead him to co-found RentSlam was his experience of helping people in other startups such as JustLanded (a website dedicated to helping expats), where it became clear that housing was one of the biggest problems people face when moving to big cities. So after a detour, Peter finally found his destiny; Let’s make finding a house suck less.
Raúl holds a master’s degree in computer science and has more than 10 years of experience working as a software engineer. As a current renter himself, he agrees, the process sucks. In the last years he has been focusing on Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Natural Language Processing, and he’s obsessed with creating a phenomenal apartment hunting experience. He loves swimming, dancing, and traveling around the world. If you bump into him on the dance floor, say hi!
