Our family is rapidly expanding! As of last week, the animals at the Zoo have officially doubled their numbers. Some, including Saul Colt, have noted that birthrates tend to spike nine months following the cold-winter months. Here at Zoocasa, we do things a little differently and much faster. That is, we have increased our numbers while there is still snow on the ground. We have done this the old fashioned way – through the purchase of two exciting home-savvy websites!
With excitement, I announce that HomeRenovationGuide.com and HomeInteriorGuide.com are the newest members of the Zoocasa family. As our new team members are still getting settled into their offices, there has already been a bit of a buzz about their move into the Zoo. As you may know, HRG and HIG are North America’s top online resource for anyone seeking to find the right person or product for any home improvement project. HRG and HIG have set themselves apart from anything else on the market with their outstanding commitment to customer service and their engaging content. Up until now, Zoocasa.com was primarily a technology based team. We can already see how these skill from the HRG/HIG team are complementary to our existing focus. As Butch Langlois, General Manager of Zoocasa puts it, “Providing renovation guidance [and content] as part of the overall search process will enable home buyers to make optimum purchasing decisions.”
I warmly welcome our nine new team members. I single out Mark Mark Bordo, our first VP of Sales & Business Development and Susan Hu, our new content Editor as people you will be hearing a lot about on the Zoocasa blog. To start, Susan will be Zoocasa’s guest blogger this month! I am pleased to welcome her as she will be giving us some insights on how to best stage a home for an open house. Stay tuned for more!
There is really never a dull moment at the Zoo.
Until next week,
