George Spencer is the founder of Rentify an online letting agent disrupting the property rental market.
Here in the UK, high streets are littered with letting agents charging sky-high fees for signing simple contracts, ripping-off tenants and landlords all the time – as if it wasn’t expensive enough already to rent!
George previously worked as a PHP developer and had a spell in advertising before he decided to set up Rentify in 2011, after deciding he couldn’t put up with estate agents ripping people off anymore.
