"I listed my company with HandyCanadian last year. I had listed with a few other sites but for the cost I just didn't see the benefit. Your site has by far the best layout, and is the best source of leads that we have." said Bryan, Baeumler of Quality Construction and Renovations Inc. "Since we listed with HandyCanadian, we've signed contracts on over $400,000 worth of work in only 4 months - that's a pretty good return on our advertising dollars, and is unsurpassed by any other advertising that we've done so far. In fact, as we've built such a network of referrals from the business we've received via your site, we no longer advertise anywhere else!"

"HandyCanadian has received 480 job postings since January 1, 2006 with estimated budgets totalling over 15 million dollars. As of March 2006 we received an estimated 46 job postings per week or 184 job postings per month. There has been a steady 20% increase per month in job postings and we estimate by November 2006 we will receive over 500 job postings per month." said Max Sheppard, co-founder of HandyCanadian. "HandyCanadian is the better way to connect homeowners with quality, reputable service professionals quickly and easily."
