  19. 19. What CustomersAre Saying "We began using RentBureau through AppFolio about 8 months ago. It was a pretty simple process for us -- adding a disclosure to our lease and appointing a "dispute handler". We've only had one dispute so far, so it hasn't added much work for us. We are looking forward to more and more companies using their program. This will give landlords and property managers a very valuable method of screening tenants.” Duke Dodson "We have received positive comments about using RentBureau to help build credit for tenants.” Rawley Harrison
  20. 20. What CustomersAre Saying "We love the fact that we can report payment history for our current tenants and the tenants appreciate that they are building good credit by paying on time” Kristin Smith "Our company places a big emphasis on rental payment history, more than just a credit score. It is important, then, for us to have accurate and timely data about rental payment history. We are excited to be able to use RentBureau, not only to get the information we need, but also to share information on our resident payment history with others.” Althea Parker
