Landlord Studio started out life in 2016 as the brain child of our leader Charles. He was shopping around for a good software to manage his own properties and was disappointed with what was on offer. He needed something mobile, something that would enable him to manage his portfolio on the go, wherever he was in the world.
The easiest solution was obviously to go away and make his own software. To that end he started developing a mobile app. Something that would do what he wanted without the limitations of the software currently on the market.
Though we have no confirmation of this, the team imagines his development process as one of wild fury. A flurry of late nights as he maniacally peered over his laptop screen in a dark room, tapping out rows upon rows of the multi-coloured code that would one day become Landlord Studio.
Finally, exhausted by his efforts the first version of the App (Property Buddy) was completed and he uploaded it to the app store.
It was to his great surprise when people started downloading it, and then an even greater surprise when they started asking him for tech support and new features.
Fast forward three years and we have a team based in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Property Buddy has become Landlord Studio, and there’s a whole lot more to come.
