Pro.com is in the multibillion-dollar local services industry, working to connect reputable local contractors with consumers and real estate agents. On August 4, at the Inman Connect Conference, Pro.com introduced Premier Home Services, a technology platform designed specifically for real estate agents looking to maintain relationships with their past, current, and potential clients.
Premier Home Services simplifies the home improvement process for an agent’s client as they prepare their house for sale or make upgrades after purchase. Pro.com has over 400,000 branded agent sites already live. The service helps agents streamline the booking and management process of home repairs for clients, and includes a dashboard that shares insights into a past client’s likelihood to sell or buy a home.
“We take the hassle out of pricing home projects and finding a Pro nationwide for any size job,” said Matt Williams, CEO and founder of Pro.com. “With Premier Home Services, we’ve made it convenient for agents to solve any client home repair or improvement need while providing them with valuable data to grow their business.”
Premier Home Services is offered as a free service through the end of this year to real estate agents who sign up during the month of August.
Led by former Digg CEO and Amazon executive Matt Williams, the company raised $3.5 million in seed funding from backers including Andreessen Horowitz, Madrona, Redpoint, and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ private investment fund, Bezos Expeditions. Post seed funding, the company has raised an additional $14 million from venture capital firms Madrona Venture Group and Maveron. Pro.com is based in Seattle, WA and was founded in 2013 by a group of service industry entrepreneurs and former Amazon executives.
Pro.com is a leader in pricing a home project, finding a trusted home improvement pro, and scheduling an appointment, all in a matter of minutes. Available throughout the U.S. in 5,500+ cities, Pro.com provides customers immediate estimates (pre-estimates) for any home service request.
Real estate agents wanting free access for the remainder of the year can sign up at Premier Home Services.
