The CHCA board passes this on without a recommendation one way or the other; we just wanted to give the neighborhood the opportunity to help or explore an Emory student enterprise. From the student founder of Justswoop.com: My name is Ken Wong, and I am currently a junior at Emory University. Approximately a year ago, I spent extensive time talking to local Atlanta homeowners and learned that they believe there are significant flaws in the current home service professional industry. I listened to these homeowners and together with my computer programmer friend at Georgia Tech, launched a web startup called JustSwoop, which I believe will help your local residents save time, money, and hassle in finding service professionals to improve, build, or maintain their homes and gardens.
Of course, there are other websites, such as Angie’s List and Craigslist, which also help homeowners find contractors, handymen, landscapers, and other service professionals. However, there are numerous reasons why our service is better:
1. Our service is absolutely free to use! There are no hidden fees or paid subscriptions to sign up.
2. Save your homeowners’ time and effort People usually spend hours contacting many different service professionals and often do not know what to expect from them. Why waste this time and energy? All members have to do is post their jobs and sit back and relax as contractors place bids vying for their service.
3. Pay less and eliminate hassle! Stop the barrage of annoying phone calls and emails from contractors! Our bidding system helps lower the final price your homeowners have to pay for service professionals.
4. Pick and choose from only the best View service professional profiles for real customer reviews, ratings, specialties, and other important information before hiring them
We believe we can help your homeowners save money. According to a recent report by the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University, the average US household spends $2,950 in home improvement costs. Because our bidding system pits service professionals against each other for homeowner’s needs, use of our website can result in the reduction of home improvement costs by approximately $100-$500 per household.
