About Ikos

The residential renting process is a mess for both renters and landlords. We are here to change that. We are aiming to simplify how landlords (specifically small-medium sized landlords) manage their investment properties, while better serving the renters who call that investment home.

Ikos is delivering a scalable leasing service for residential landlords that improves their occupancy rates and provides real-time market data for rental, rehab and investment decisions.
