About TheGuarantors

TheGuarantors is a fintech company dedicated to creating winning opportunities for the real estate ecosystem. For over four years the company has been rethinking industry inefficiencies and market needs to build innovative insurance and financial products that drive growth and protect long-term prosperity. With a focus on data and industry expertise in real estate, risk, and finance, TheGuarantors optimizes the relationships between landlords, leasing staff, brokers, and tenants by taking risk out of the leasing process and making it more efficient at the same time.

Designed for multifamily assets, Guaranti is a program of products and solutions built to optimize protection throughout the renter lifecycle. Securiti is the first financial amenity for office leases - a smarter security deposit that costs a fraction of the price of a traditional security package of cash or a letter of credit, with the same coverage landlords have come to expect.
