Every year, homeowners around the nation seek home-improvement services, the means to verify a contractor’s reputation, or the ability to seamlessly compare quotes. A recent survey by online real estate "shop" Zillow found that 60% of homeowners planned to make a home improvement this past summer. Home Owners Network (HON) has forged a partnership with Redbeacon (a Home Depot company) to provide enhanced services to members, making home-improvement projects and repairs with local contractors easier than ever.
Redbeacon provides a platform to connect homeowners with the service professionals for home services and maintenance needs. Through Redbeacon, HON members receive responses from local pros that are available to do the work. Redbeacon matches the pros with the homeowners. Most customers get the first response within minutes of submitting a service request. "The Redbeacon interface is clean and easy to use; it’s the perfect extension of our home-tech support-service model," says Patrick Norton, Director of Business Development at HON. HON members can also view a contractor’s reputation via reviews from past Redbeacon customers.
Redbeacon guarantees an exclusive $1,000 financial protection for contracted jobs to HON members. Redbeacon's Guarantee is to ensure satisfaction with the referral, as long as payment is made to the pro through Redbeacon’s secure online platform. "HON members will absolutely love the satisfaction guarantee that Redbeacon offers," says Norton. "Combined with HON’s Guarantee and access to customer service for our members," says Norton, "This level of service is only available to HON members, and we are proud to offer it to them."
