Home improvement contractors get their digital fix

ReferralBuzzBeing a home owner is tough enough in this current economy and finding contractors to do home improvements or remodeling shouldn’t have to stress you out even more. Finding a home service provider you know, like and trust can be daunting, but local Minneapolis startup ReferralBuzz might have the answer to your woes.

There are a vast number of review sites that provide information and feedback on potential providers. But exactly how much confidence can you put into anonymous Internet reviews? After all, most review sites let just about anybody post a review. Even sites like Angie’s list, who promotes that reviews “come from real people like you,” aren’t entirely useful if you’re looking to get firsthand feedback from people you both know and trust.
