The Rental Girl


Liz McDonald founded The Rental Girl Leasing and Sales brokerage in 2004. Since then, she has taken her company from a one-girl shop in the Los Feliz and Silver Lake neighborhoods to more than one hundred communities across LA. What started as a small business run out of a guest house has turned into a nationally recognized name that receives media attention and accolades from thousands of clients and renters.
To celebrate a spirit of ingenuity and innovation, she’s created a stationary line and opened a decor and gift shop, Hood n Home in 2017. A visionary Creative Director of Brand and Marketing,┬áLiz now has her sights set on The Rental Girl expansion to neighborhoods in sister cities around the country, including an upcoming branch in the East Village neighborhood of NYC in summer of 2019.
In 2016, Liz was introduced to the Tenants-in-Common (TIC) concept and has been instrumental in pioneering the TIC market in Los Angeles. Liz and her team have brought over 50 TIC units to the LA market. Liz is active in educating her community on the opportunities of TIC ownership and frequently hosts buyer and Realtor workshops on the subject.
