The Local Services Marketplace Matches and Connects Consumers to the Right Local Pros By Phone in 90 Seconds

TalkLocal makes it easier than ever to book repairs, renovations, and other local services.

Local search hassles plague communities across the country and Garland is no exception. That’s why we’re here to make a great city even better.

TalkLocal is launching in Garland, Texas to connect consumers to the right service professionals by phone in about 90 seconds.

The launch of the local services marketplace is only the latest development in series of turn of the century revival efforts, including the opening of Hawaiian Falls in 2003 and the opening of a small business park called Firewheel Town Center in 2005. The transformation culminated in Garland ranking among the “Top 100 Places to Live” by CNN and Money magazine. TalkLocal’s launch will further enhance Garland’s local economy by making it simpler and more affordable for small businesses to market to and get found by the right consumers online.

TalkLocal's founder, himself a small business owner, was inundated with service requests that conflicted with his company's schedule and service offerings. So, he created TalkLocal to match and connect businesses and consumers in about 90 seconds - at least 50x faster than other local services marketplaces out there, based on the team’s own research.

Now, to hear from an available service professional in about 90 seconds, it only takes 3 steps:

1) Enter location, availability, and service details at

2) Standby as TalkLocal's algorithm rapidly filters through the city’s thousands of businesses, finding the best match based on…

  • Proximity
  • Availability
  • Online consumer ratings/reviews
  • Social media interactions
  • Call analytics

3) Pick up the phone to talk to the right local pro, right now.

Free to consumers, member businesses get a free preview of each matching job and only pay a small flat rate when they opt-in and talk to an actively searching customer.

In over 50 service categories like roofing, accountants and heating and cooling, TalkLocal takes the hassle out of finding the right local professionals. And, consumer contact info is not shared, sold, or visible on phone records or caller IDs. TalkLocal conversations occur over a secure line to protect consumer privacy.

“Local search hassles plague communities across the country and Garland is no exception. That’s why we’re here to make a great city even better,” said TalkLocal founder, Gurpreet Singh.

TalkLocal raised $3.9 million in venture funding to date, has served in 49 states and recently marked its one millionth service request call. Connect with TalkLocal on Facebook and Twitter.
