Quicken Loans Inc. chairman and founder Dan Gilbert Wednesday announced that Quizzle LLC will be joining Quicken Loans when it moves to Detroit’s Compuware building later this month.
Quizzle, which has more than 500,000 registered users, is a free online tool that helps consumers better manage their personal finances.
“Quizzle will be a great addition to our core group of companies making the move to Detroit,” Gilbert said. “I am hopeful that other companies are noting the positive momentum taking place in the city, and are considering becoming part of the new Detroit and its exciting revitalization.”
Quizzle, which will join Quicken Loans, Fathead, In-House Realty and One Reverse Mortgage in Detroit, offers consumers access to a number of financial planning tools, including a completely free, no-strings-attached copy of their credit report and score.
“We are a young, energetic, new-economy growth company looking forward to benefitting from what Detroit has to offer us, and also contributing to the very exciting future of our downtown,” said Todd Albery, Quizzle CEO. “We are thrilled to be among the high-tech, internet-based companies lined up along the new ‘Webward Avenue,'” a play on Woodward Avenue.
Originally part of Quicken Loans and spun off in 2008, Quizzle has seen rapid growth, offering consumers the ability to examine their home, money and credit, all in one place, without any obligation. The site also allows consumers to opt-in to several affordable value-added services, including a Credit Personal Trainer, and credit and identity theft monitoring.
“Downtown Detroit is about to experience a boom in the creation and growth of entrepreneurial, technology-focused companies unlike anything seen before in our part of the country,” Gilbert said. “We are more than excited to be at the core of this transformation.”
