It’s important to stand out from the pack in any way you can. Winning one of HomeStars coveted awards is one of the most effective ways to do so. When homeowners see an award badge on your listing (or other marketing materials) it lets them know instantly that you’re a top performing pro in your field.
Provide Instant Credibility
HomeStars’ awards signify excellence. They indicate to homeowners that, although you may be a stranger they contacted online, you’re a trustworthy pro with a Verified badge, a healthy Star Score, and authentic homeowner reviews. It cuts out all the guesswork involved in hiring, and reduces the barriers between someone coming across your company online and contacting you to learn more.
