United Kingdom (PRWEB) February 7, 2007
Roomster.net, an advanced roommate and apartment matching service that connects members using personality traits, keyword searches and interests, has announced that it is now offering its service in the United Kingdom. The site, which launched in 2003, continues to dominate the online apartment, roommate and sublet matching arena in the United States and Canada. Roomster UK, an extension of the existing Roomster site, services all major cities in the UK including Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, and Oxford.
"In the last few months we have received an increased demand for our services in the UK and are very excited to offer consumers in the U.K a great product such as Roomster," explained John S. Shriber, CEO of Roomster. He added, "We are pleased with the tremendous growth that we have seen over such a short period of time. Thousands of new members have listed roommate profiles, available rooms and apartments for rent. We are thrilled that property owners in the UK have embraced Roomster so quickly as a way to list their available rental properties. The only real difference is that we refer to these new members as flat shares and flats to let profiles."
Roomster pioneered the social networking model for the purposes of relocation in 2003. Members of Roomster have had great success because of the added flexibility to express themselves by not only posting pictures, but testimonials from friends, listing hobbies, interests and asking personal questions on profile pages. Users can easily communicate with other members by utilizing a proprietary messaging system. Finding available properties on roomster is made easy thanks to maps furnished by Google.
"We successfully planned and executed our expansion efforts in the UK." said Roman Zaks, CTO of Roomster. He further explained "We made the necessary preparations in our infrastructure and technology to accommodate for rapid expansion and growth. We're now prepared to move forward with a global vision in mind."
Roomster.net is an online apartment renting, roommate matching community that operates in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. It was founded in 2003 by John S. Shriber and Roman Zaks as a New York corporation. There are approximately 900,000 active profiles. Roomster Corp is staffed by a small dedicated team.
