About Us

When you consider the life of our founder, it's surprising that Trintals didn't happen a lot sooner than it did. With a background in software engineering and a growing property (strictly rentals) management enterprise, Shankar T. is the perfect type to start a company like Trintals, but he never felt the need until something happened just over a year ago.

"I was sitting down with a programmer I hired to do some custom modifications to the property management software we were using. We were laughing a little bit - but at the same time being frustrated about this piece of supposedly best-in-class software and what we had to go through just to get it to work the way we wanted it to. My programmer mentioned that his mother wanted to use her retirement savings to invest in a rental property and wondered if I could help her or give her any good advice. I said that the best advice I had at the moment would be to use pencil and paper for the next 10 years until the software caught up. We had another good laugh about this but I couldn’t stop thinking about the opportunity staring me in the face."

More and more software products are released every day as solutions to the needs of the real estate rentals market. This is probably because, on the surface, it seems like a pretty easy application to put together - a database of products (properties) and a database of customers (renters) - match them up and you’re in business. This simplistic view is why most of these solutions fail. There is so much more to a successful lease than matching renter to property, and a great software tool must integrate ALL the pieces into its architecture. But that’s only half the battle: if property managers and renters don’t find the tool easy (perhaps even enjoyable) to use, then it’s not a solution to anything.

"I put together a team to develop the best solution to the needs of the home rentals market. We combine many decades of expertise in property management with equal powers in software design and development - including my original hired programmer, along with his mother as a reminder that we are building a tool that anybody can use without an instruction manual."

We’re building a tool that includes all the features you would ever want or need to easily rent out your property or find a rental home to live in. Trintals is that tool, and we are building in the intelligence of our combined experience and the ability to learn and adapt to the needs of users and of a changing marketplace.

Renting doesn’t have to be a pain in the butt. It doesn’t matter if you rent a trendy penthouse apartment or the main floor of a midcentury bungalow - we call it home.
