Liberty Rent Guarantee is on a mission to help build communities by reducing the risk of defaults in the multi-family market. We are a cosigner for potential residents of multi-family properties who have less-than-perfect credit. 

 

Following the Housing Crisis of 2007, founder and CEO, Bubba Grimsley, a practicing attorney, was representing families who had lost their homes and had difficulty finding a place to live because their credit had been damaged. The families were still employed, still had kids in the school system and ties to the community, but they were unable to rent based on their credit scores.  

“We were working closely with people who proved that your credit score does not define you,” he said. “We wanted to offer more than tenant screening. We were willing to guarantee our results by co-signing for the resident. If we said they would make a good tenant, we agreed to stand behind them.”

Now, Liberty Rent Guarantee helps property owners fill units without risk of default, while simultaneously helping consumers find a good home and re-build their credit. “We give our residents more than just a key to a new apartment,” Grimsley says. “We give them a key to a new life.”

Operating nationwide, Liberty Rent Guarantee has helped secure homes for thousands of families by serving as a limited co-signer an every lease it agrees to guarantee.

 

 

The Liberty Rent Guarantee Team is here to help you fill units and build communities. We attend many industry trade shows and would love to meet you personally. We are here for you and will take care of any question or concern.

BUBBA Grimsley

For the past two decades, Bubba Grimsley has been in the private practice of law. About 10 years ago, Grimsley began to transition into business ventures. He has been the owner of small businesses, a partner in startups, has served on the boards of publicly-traded companies, and has served as general counsel and CEO of a small technology company.

Inspired by helping people during and after the housing crisis, he found a recipe that could benefit property owners and consumers. Since 2014, he and his Liberty Rent Guarantee partners have cosigned for thousands of guaranteed contracts to help families who would not have otherwise qualified to live in their desired community.

Bubba works hard for his customers. But when the work is done, he spends his time boating and fishing on the Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi Gulf Coast with his two sons. “Being a father to my two boys is my life’s greatest accomplishment,” he says.

In addition to family and business, Bubba also has a passion for his community and philanthropic projects. He has served on four children’s charity boards, and has twice ridden a 150-mile, single-day bicycle ride for charity.

He says that working with the Liberty Rent Guarantee team doesn’t feel like work. “We work well together, and we play well together,” he says. “We hold nothing back. We have a great task ahead of us, and we shine in performing it.”

Immediately after graduating from Auburn University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a minor in business, he began selling residential and commercial HVAC in Central Alabama.

An avid golfer, Brandon takes pride in refining the sport and spending time on the golf course with friends and family. The competitive nature of golf, combined with the precision required, has translated into his business success. He says his greatest business accomplishment is when he acquired an under-performing territory and then turned it into a territory that ranked fifth nationally for his company.

In addition to golf, Brandon loves all things Auburn and all kinds of music. He and his wife, a fellow Auburn graduate, are the proud parents of a son and a daughter.

Brandon takes pride is his contributions to the Liberty Rent Guarantee efforts. “I don’t make work about me—it’s always about the customer, he says. “It’s important to be involved with a business that provides a genuine service that helps a lot of people. I feel like working with Liberty Rent Guarantee allows me to be a part of something that is small, but has unlimited potential. We truly provide a unique service where everyone benefits.”
