About Us

We, at Know Your Trade, believe strongly in the home exchange concept. KYT began when we started exploring alternatives to our present home exchange club. We soon realized that there were dozens of choices and it would take a very long time to explore them. So, we decided to do the work for you and put all that home exchange information in one, easy to use place.

Joe Murray , AKA Yorick

I made my first home swap at the tender age of seventeen. I was an exchange student at a German university living in a small room in a student housing facility in Muenster. I was contacted through the international student travel agency by a couple of British students rooming at similar digs at the University of London campus in Surrey. They were looking for a place to trade over spring break and we made the deal (this was long before email) by letters and one quick phone call. Since then I have traded countless times over nearly forty years on six out of the seven continents.

Leslie Nicodemus, AKA the Exchange Queen

I came into the home exchange world via Joe. I have traveled extensively, to such far flung places as Kyrgyzstan and Moscow. Being a naturally thrifty person, when Joe suggested trying a home exchange to Paris, I jumped at the chance. The experience was wonderful; two weeks in the middle of the Latin Quarter in a one bedroom apartment. I loved learning the neighborhood and becoming a regular at the local bar. I was hooked! We are now planning another home exchange to Florence. These trips would not be possible without home exchange.

We have created this site to enrich your trading experience and make the entire homeexchange process easier and less mysterious. So, regardless of your trading experience, your location, your age or lifestyle, take a look at KYT and if anything comes to mind that you feel may be valuable to the home exchange community, please do drop us a line and we’ll put it out there.
