Local startup Tenant Turner forms partnership with Boston-based property management software firm

Richmond-based startup company Tenant Turner, which makes software that helps property managers lease apartments and homes, has formed a partnership with a larger company that will help expand its service into international markets.

Tenant Turner announced this week it has teamed up with Buildium, a Boston-based company that offers property management software for real estate professionals. Under the partnership, Buildium will integrate Tenant Turner’s software into its own services for customers, in a new system called Showings Coordinator, designed to streamline both property management and leasing.

“It is a big milestone for us,” said James Barrett, Tenant Turner’s CEO who co-founded the company in 2014 with Brandon Anderson and Chris Stewart.

Tenant Turner has a staff of six in Richmond. There is no change in ownership as a result of the deal with Buildium, and Tenant Turner will continue to offer its software to customers separately, Barrett said.

The Buildium partnership enables Tenant Turner to expand its service to more customers in more markets.  Read more at
