The Expertise Behind Apartment Rental Experts

Apartment Rental Experts is owned and run by Dave Scott and Jay Wylie, business partners who work in tandem to provide the most knowledgeable and technically savvy apartment rental agency in the Cambridge-Somerville market.

Dave Scott

Partner, Co-Owner and Broker of Record (MA license #9054620)
Dave moved to the region in the fall of 1993 to study English Literature at Boston University. In 1996, after moving four times in four years, he decided to become a rental agent. By April 2000, he was working full time at a busy rental office in Cambridge called Apartment Rental Experts. Things there were different from other rental offices – the listings better, paperwork tighter, and atmosphere more team-oriented than what he’d seen at other agencies. This busy office soon became two, with a second location in Davis Square. If someone was trying to list or rent in Cambridge or Somerville, it was hard not to run into agents from Apartment Rental Experts. Dave became so committed to Apartment Rental Experts, so excited about the way the agency worked, that when, in spring 2003, the opportunity arose to buy the business, he jumped at the chance. Since then, he’s made Apartment Rental Experts the go-to apartment rental agency in this market.

Jay Wylie

Partner, Co-Owner and Technology Guru One way Dave Scott made Apartment Rental Experts a better organization was by bringing in Jay Wylie as business partner and co-owner. Jay had years of experience in information systems consulting, including working at companies such as Accenture and VistaPrint. His experience organizing business data brought a 21st century edge to the often archaic and usually chaotic world of apartment rentals. One of Jay’s most important contributions was developing a sophisticated apartment database that enables Apartment Rental Experts to have real-time listings of all available apartments. Jay has had a lot to do with the agency’s ability to work so quickly and effectively on behalf of tenants and landlords.
