Mynd co-founders Doug Brien and Colin Wiel’s friendship traces back many years. From a mutual passion for real estate, the duo launched the 2nd largest NYSE publicly traded, single-family rental REIT in the US. Seemingly overnight, Waypoint Homes grew to 500+ staff, managing a portfolio of over $3 billion in rental properties across the country.

In 2014, Doug and Colin received the E&Y Northern California Entrepreneurs of the Year and were listed among the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs by Goldman Sachs. Even as industry detractors believed that single-family rentals couldn’t be managed efficiently at scale, the two men were recognized as industry trailblazers. And they weren’t finished.

Doug and Colin’s collective experience sparked an idea — cause a major shift in how real estate management is done. Where every investor-owner and tenant is truly respected, heard and valued by its rental property management company — not an afterthought.

The result is the first mobile-focused rental property management company in the country, powered by an industry-first mobile app that provides you rich, up-to-the-minute data on maintenance updates to rental income status and beyond.

You’ll now be a tap and swipe away from your rental properties, the same way you are with your stock market and other investments. Add in unparalleled service from a team who has your best interests at heart, at all times, and this is what Doug and Colin have in Mynd.

We currently serve the East Bay and South Bay regions in Northern California, and will be expanding to other markets in 2018.
