Simela was named to the Westfair Business Journal 40 Under 40, and was invited to the Bipartisan Policy Center Executive Council on housing affordability.

“The most rewarding part of being a part of Matrix Rental Solutions has been being able to make a meaningful impact in the lives of those who struggle through the rental housing process,” says Simela. “Every person deserves access to clean, safe, affordable housing and being able to build an ecosystem that helps people navigate the complex waters of finding housing has truly been one of the most rewarding things I have experienced in my life. When we speak to customers who thank us for making their lives easier and for making a daunting task much simpler, it reminds me every day why we do what we do.”
