Kazadu LLC, a Virginia-based technology company in a strategic partnership with Fatbit Technologies, has unveiled a new property portal, kazadu.com. The new portal and search engine has been exclusively designed to connect home buyers, sellers and homeowners to top-rated real estate agents, mortgage lenders, home insurance agents, new home builders and all other types of home service contractors. Kazadu enables members to research, connect or leave reviews on home professionals without charging subscriptions or monthly fees.
Home buyers, sellers and homeowners can filter home service professionals by several variables: service areas, service category, languages spoken, designations, certifications, professional experience, specializations, reviews and testimonials. Kazadu service provider members can also connect, give referrals, and network with each other. In cities without registered members, Kazadu’s exclusive Promatch service can match members to up to three local top rated home service providers for free with no obligation.
Kazadu’s ‘Ask the Expert®’ section allows members to ask real estate or home related repair questions and receive answers from applicable members. Service provider members have the ability to set up and give ‘deals’ to users in the member deals section allowing consumers to search for members based on the ‘deals’ they are offering.
Kazadu’s CEO, Chris Carlson, a 10 year real estate expert says, “We firmly believe that consumers should not have to pay to conduct on-line research when finding, hiring or leaving reviews on a home service professional. A real estate related transaction is the largest financial decision that most people will make in a lifetime, it’s only logical to begin with researching and choosing the right real estate agent or home service contractor before you begin the process of buying, selling or making repairs to your home. You won’t find doctors, dentists, auto mechanics or yoga instructors on Kazadu, only home professionals.”
The new portal said that, the mega real estate websites lead users to believe that finding a house should be the first step in a home search. Other websites will claim that because a real estate agent or home service provider has millions in past sales that they would do a better job than an agent with fewer sales. This is not necessarily true. Users can essentially find the same home listings on any agent’s website as home listing data is widely shared between brokers. There are many qualified and trained newer real estate agents who can perform just as well as the veteran agents. It does not make sense to hire a home service contractor or real estate agent just because they have paid for an advertisement on a major search engine or other similar real estate website. Kazadu allows consumers to make educated informed decisions and is free for everyone.
