Urban Igloo, a residential real estate firm for apartment renters servicing Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania, this week expanded operations with the new employees in Washington and Philadelphia.

Rick Gersten, CEO and president of Urban Igloo, said in a press release that six hires joined teams in the two cities, one as an operations manager responsible for all business services; one as a director of sales; and four real estate agents.

Urban Igloo renters work with local agents to find apartments, and landlords post multiunit property or individual condos and match up with Philadelphia-area renters on the UrbanIgloo.com website.

Founded in 2009 in Washington, Urban Igloo expanded to Philadelphia in 2011. Its offices are at 2015 Walnut St., and the company is backed by the venture firm Freedom Capitol L.L.C.
