Aaron DiCaprio, Rent Rescue
CEO and co-founder
Specialty: Rental properties
Aaron DiCaprio is the co-founder of Rent Rescue, which provides rent default insurance that reimburses residential property owners for up to six months and repays certain legal expenses associated with defaults. Prior to leading Rent Rescue, DiCaprio was an insurance defense litigator and held senior positions with various insurance organizations.
“I think the best business ideas spring from personal experience,” DiCaprio says. “My wife and I bought a house in Denver and had every intention of settling down, but circumstances forced us to relocate across the country. We hired a property manager and entered into a lease with a qualified tenant – or so we thought.” Five months later, the rent wasn’t paid; the tenant had lost his job and was moving. That’s when Rent Rescue began to take shape.
“I like being a problem-solver for my clients,” DiCaprio says. “Their issues are never black and white, and I’ve found that the most successful professionals are those who ask questions and can navigate the gray.”
