Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) September 7, 2010
HomeSavvi, a homeowner's complete online guide to the entire home remodeling process, today announced it has signed a multi-year sales and marketing agreement with Seattle Times Company (STC). Under this partnership, STC will provide a variety of gateways to the HomeSavvi site throughout the Seattle Times’ online network of sites, enabling remodeling professionals to broaden their educational reach and awareness among local consumers, and providing homeowners with enhanced access to the latest remodeling tips, trends and resources.
“After careful evaluation of all potential media partners, a partnership with the Seattle Times Company was clearly the best fit,” explains Villette Nolon, co-founder and CEO of HomeSavvi. “The Seattle Times is second-to-none in reaching homeowners in Western Washington, with a combined print and online readership of 1.8 million adults. Since 1896, it has been the Northwest’s most trusted source of local news and information, earning the respect of local consumers and leading the way in innovative new products. Homes remain the number-one investment consumers make, a trend that is even more accentuated in today’s uncertain economic climate. Partnering with The Seattle Times will help local homeowners make better-informed decisions and boost the awareness of local remodeling businesses.”
“We are constantly looking to find new and innovative ways to meet the needs of our readers and advertisers, and to enhance our online presence with current and expert information,” added Alan Fisco, senior vice president for sales and marketing at Seattle Times Company. “The quality experience HomeSavvi provides to homeowners who look to remodel, and to remodeling professionals who look to reach those homeowners, will be a great addition for our readers and advertisers.”

In these economic times, this is critical.”
