In 2017, Mishin has moved to New York where he got to experience the challenge of apartment-hunting firsthand. Prohibitive costs, predatory fees, complicated requirements, long-term lease commitments—it seemed impossibly difficult to secure housing under these terms. He started June Homes because he saw an opportunity for innovation that could benefit tenants as well as mom and pop landlords struggling with vacancies. The company’s unique business model is designed to help people find and easily apply for housing in major cities around the world. They can choose custom lease terms, take virtual tours, and fill out convenient online applications. “June Homes runs much deeper than addressing a desire for flexible living, which is now table stakes in today’s world,” says Mishin. “This model brings more transparency and equity to the real estate experience.”
Mishin was named “Best Young Entrepreneur'' in 2011 and was a recipient of the “Global Student Entrepreneur Award'' in 2012. He was ranked on the “Top 5 Student Entrepreneurs In The World'' list by Entrepreneurs Organization. He has been included on “30 under 30” lists by Nordic Awards, Snob, and Expert Magazine, and featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Business Insider. Daniel lives in New York City and enjoys hiking, healthy lifestyle and travelling as his hobbies.
