'Oliver' is real estate app that makes it easier for users to rent an apartment by cutting out the middleman. Those who have spent time looking for an apartment rental have likely had to deal with brokers who take a cut of their rent. The Oliver app removes the broker from the rental equation, thus helping you to save money when apartment hunting.

The basic premise of the app is to digitally connect renters to apartments. However, Oliver aggregates rent inventory directly from landlords, which helps renters avoid going through a broker. While brokers can be useful to help weed through undesirable tenants, many apartment rentals require credit checks and rental applications anyway. Oliver ultimately helps renters save time and money, simply by cutting out the middleman.
