About Us

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.

Founder and CEO Shankar Thayver put together a team to develop the best solution to the needs of the home rentals market. We've combined many decades of expertise in property management with equal powers in software design and development, and we are building a tool that includes all the features you would ever want or need to easily rent out your property or to 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 mainfloor of a midcentury bungalow - we call it home.
