A community for disaster victims
At Sinistar, we make temporary relocation more manageable.
It all began in 2016, when Alexis ran into a friend. She told him that her mother was dealing with the fallout from a fire and was living in a hotel. Touched by her misfortune, Alexis offered to let her rent a friend’s home. Little by little, the idea of a host community for disaster victims began to take shape in his mind.
Soon after, the Sinistar platform was born. Sinistar is an online marketplace for offering and renting temporary housing after a loss. Our hosts offer their homes to insurance companies looking to temporarily relocate their policyholders.
Who we help
After a loss, no one should have to stay in a hotel for months on end, miles away from home. And who better to house disaster victims than members of their community?
We know that hosts have a lot to offer. That’s why we want to help them support local families who need it, one rental at a time.
Claims adjusters’ time is valuable. Sinistar’s technology allows them to relocate their insureds faster and more cost-effectively – without compromising on quality.
