Why We Started

Moving in New York City is stressful. There’s high rent, strict financial qualifications, scams, and looking for roommates only adds a new level of complexity. We’ve been there, we’ve done it, and it’s no easy feat. After facing the trials of her own big-city move post-university in 2011, founder Sarah Hill realized that there was a real need for reliable information and support tailored to young professionals and students moving to New York City for the first time. Based on her own personal experience as a renter and Real Estate professional, she started matching roommates based on criteria that mattered most to create new homes that offered peace of mind. Through positive reviews and organic referrals, Perfect Strangers quickly grew from Sarah’s side hustle to her main hustle. Today she manages a full team of Certified Roommate Matchmakers throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, & Queens.
