We are a team of driven individuals working to streamline the traditional process of buying a vehicle. And we're glad you're here.

Our Roots

It was 1998 in the Queen City when young accountant Doug Lebda turned frustration into inspiration. After experiencing how difficult it was to find a mortgage, he started LendingTree to take the stress out of the loan search. Just one year later, we realized the auto industry had room for improvement, too. So we branched out.

What started with a small network of lenders has grown into a fully optimized marketplace, equipped with all the tools you need to find and finance the perfect car. Sure, we've experienced a lot in the past 15 years, but we won't outgrow our punchy startup personality or our commitment to empowering smart buyers like you.
