As one of the founding partners of Gelt, Inc., Damian Langere helped lead the company’s growth from a single $150,000 four-plex to its current asset base of over $1 billion. One of Damian’s specialties is directing value-add opportunities by enhancing operational efficiencies and re-branding assets to appeal to the growing millennial renter generation.
Through his wide and varied experience working with onsite managers to enhance operational efficiencies, Damian saw a huge void and realized there was a tremendous opportunity to build a powerful payment and financing technology. This platform would provide renters living in Gelt properties payment options, such as move-in financing and rental payment flexibility. Damian sees the entire rental payment industry stuck in the stone-age era of paper checks, money orders, and inflexible due dates. His vision became a reality and Domuso.com has now grown its customer base well beyond Gelt’s properties. Domuso is fast becoming a formidable brand within the multifamily industry and is poised to be the leading payment and financing platform for apartment renters nationwide.
In July of 2017, he and Keith Wasserman formed The Gelt Foundation, a public nonprofit whose mission is to help responsible renters from being evicted or forced to move because of an unexpected financial emergency.
Damian graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a double degree in Environmental Science and Geography in 2004. In his free time, he enjoys tennis, backcountry backpacking, international travel and sailing.
