Kevin Ortner CEO of Renters Warehouse


Kevin Ortner is the President and CEO of Renters Warehouse, America's leading real estate investment services company. Kevin joined the company in 2009 when he opened the first Renters Warehouse franchise in Phoenix, AZ. His franchise had been consistently awarded with best-in-class business and culture awards.

After working in many capacities across the organization, in 2015 Kevin was named President and CEO, helping Renters Warehouse through monumental growth nationwide and a majority share private equity investment. Kevin is a two-time honoree of the American Stevie Business Awards, Executive of the Year award (2015 and 2016) and received an International Stevie Business Award for his achievements as CEO of Renters Warehouse. His leadership helped the company become an honoree of the prestigious Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest growing privately held companies in America nine consecutive years in a row.

Renters Warehouse now manages more than $3 billion in residential real estate, servicing over 14,000+ investors across 22,000+ residential homes over 42 markets and 25 states. In 2015, Renters Warehouse officially trademarked the term Rent Estate™ to redefine the entire Single Family Rental (SFR) industry as real estate gives way to this increasingly lucrative asset. Winning dozens of awards and securing many honors, Renters Warehouse is recognized as being both one of the fastest growing companies, as well as one renowned for being an exceptional employer.

In 2017, Ortner authored his first book - Rent Estate™ Revolution. The book shares his philosophy and business expertise around single-family rentals and the power of Rent Estate to drive long-term wealth creation, retirement security and financial freedom for the everyday person.

In December 2018, Renters Warehouse announced the acquisition of OwnAmerica, making Renters Warehouse America’s leading real estate investment services company. Now, with the addition of the Renters Warehouse Investor Marketplace, renters can find quality homes to lease, and investors can plan, research, buy, track and sell their real estate investments all in one place .

Rent Estate Revolution™

“Rent Estate changed my life. Every day, I feel the financial peace of mind it has brought to me and my family.”

In Rent Estate Revolution, Kevin Ortner makes the powerful case that buying and renting out single-family homes (“Rent Estate”) offers everyday Americans their best path to retirement security, financial freedom, and the New American Dream.

Four eye-opening facts point to the fast-growing Rent Estate Revolution all around us:

  • Homeownership in America is less popular today than it’s been in over 50 years, and more people of all ages are renting single-family homes.
  • Rent Estate is “real estate for the rest of us”— in some cases requiring just a few thousand dollars to buy a property and get started.
  • Unlike real estate, Rent Estate lets you find investments using other people’s knowledge, buy and hold them using other people’s money, and manage them using other people’s time.
  • Advances in affordable property management make it easier than ever to own multiple Rent Estate properties.

As someone from modest means who secured his first Rent Estate property as a college freshman and now runs the nation’s largest residential property management company, Ortner is uniquely qualified to write this book. By the time you turn the last page, you’ll be red up to take control of your financial destiny, become a Rent Estate entrepreneur, and join the Revolution!

Foreword by Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, PhD, and Economic Policy Advisor to President Ronald Reagan.
