How it started

andy ahitow
From his first job in 2001 as an apartment locator in a dusty broom closet to co-founding Chicago's largest Apartment Finding Agency, Chicago Apartment Finders, Andy Ahitow brings more than 20 years of deep-rooted industry experience to the RentLife team.

melissa moline miller
An off-campus job at a student housing community is what led Melissa Moline Miller to the industry. She's called Chicago home since 2004, where she first worked as a leasing agent for a prominent condominium deconversion developer.

Andy has worked in every aspect of this business: leasing agent, managing brokers, residential sales and most recently as an apartment developer overseeing more than 75 buildings and 2,000 units.

From there, she started her leasing brokerage, which fueled her passion for industry innovation. In 2013, Melissa developed inRentive, a real estate tech platform selected as one of the ten companies to pitch at Google for Entrepreneur's Demo Day.

An unexpected mutual connection brought Melissa and Andy together in 2020. They share a vision for creating the industry's most cutting-edge real estate leasing brokerage and look forward to growing RentLife into a household name.
