Seattle Stagers, Handymen Now Available in Open Book

Once you decide to list your home, you may need some work done to make it sparkle on opening day. But, who will you trust to do the work? That is the $319,500* question.

You want the best referrals, ratings and information to make that decision. That’s why we’ve expanded Redfin Open Book to include reviews of handymen and stagers in Seattle.

Now home-selling clients can search for the best professionals to prepare their home, then rate and review the work done once the transaction closes. Every time a Redfin client uses a service provider, she’ll have an opportunity to review their work, and those reviews will accumulate over time. Open Book’s information is verifiable – only Redfin clients will review service providers—not some handyman’s brother making Mr. Joe Hammer look good when he’s actually just barely adequate. Plus if you sell with Redfin, we’ll match up to $250 toward your home improvements.

We’ve partnered with some of the best professionals we’ve worked with and screened them thoroughly. We’ll post every review, good, bad, or ugly, right on their profile just like we do with our own agents.

Besides Seattle, Open Book for Sellers is now available in the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Southern California and the Washington DC area.
