“大学毕业生毕业后第一个打交道的就是他们的雇主以及帮他们找到第一套住所的人，” The Next Step Realty公司的合伙创始人布莱尔•布兰特说道。尽管他没能力帮助同学们找到第一份工作，但是他可以帮助他们找到第一套住所。
The Next Step Realty创立之初旨在帮助大城市（例如纽约、伦敦）刚毕业的大学生找到他们的第一套住所。仅仅一年的时间内，通过免费的网站服务，布兰特和合伙创始人贝尔顿•贝克已经建立起了一个有近5，000人的大学生客户群。80家房产中介公司已经与网站签约，他们必须付费才能接触到这些正在找房子的毕业生。

"The first relationships college students establish after graduation are with their employer and with the person who finds them their first living situation." So says The Next Step Realty cofounder Blair Brandt. While he can't help his former classmates find a job, he can help them find a place to live.
The Next Step Realty was created as a network for recently employed graduates in major cities like New York and London to find their first living arrangements. In just a year, Brandt and cofounder Belton Baker have put together a community of nearly 5,000 college students who don't pay a dime for the service. 80 brokers have signed up so far, and they pay for access to those rental-seeking grads.
Blair personally tries to connect brokers with graduates who have similar interests, went to similar schools, and had similar first jobs. By doing so, he wants to establish relationships that will go far beyond a graduate's first space.
