Dave Dugdale started RentVine in the spring of 2005. Unlike RentVine's competitors Dave Dugdale has kept the company small (just himself) and lightweight. Dave hopes in a year or two (2009) that his site will catch up to the big sites such as RentClicks, RentalHouses which have many dozen employees. OK, who am I kidding, everyone knows that I am writing this (Dave), let me drop the 3rd person.
Some companies like RentalHouses received over 3 million dollars in funding, I have received none. I am all about starting this company in an organic fashion.
Now that RentalHouses, RentClicks and HomeRentalAds have been acquired by CSI, my task of beating them in a couple of years is getting harder.
I like to think of myself as a friendly competitor and I have had my competition on my podcast show at RadioVine.
I also developed a free interactive mapping tool for property managers as well that allows you display all the properties for rent on the home page of your site.
