Dave Maundrell, the 36-year-old founder of aptsandlofts.com, started out his real estate career with atypical haste. In his company’s first month in 2002, he rented 30 Williamsburg apartments working by himself out of his childhood home and car. At the time, he told the Daily News, people didn’t know where the neighborhood was. “I would have to say near Greenpoint, or near the Williamsburg Bridge and Peter Luger,” he said. Today, he and his nearly 40 agents have rented upwards of 10,000 apartments, including more than 90 percent of 349 Metropolitan Avenue‘s 40 units in the last nine days alone. In a profile of the self-made real estate pioneer, the paper credits him with putting Williamsburg on the map “more than any single person working in New York real estate.” And he’s not done yet. “I want to do something big,” he said. “Take this national. Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Philly. We can do this anywhere they have big spaces and cool real estate. I’m a worker. We’ll make it happen.” [NYDN]
