As we approach the holiday season and the end of the year, it signifies another annual time of celebration, the HomeStars Inc. Best of Awards season!!!
Each year, hundreds of companies across Canada are celebrated as HomeStars’s Best and we are excited that the announcements of who was the best in 2014 are just around the corner.
Qualification for the 2014 Best of Awards is based on the following criteria:
A company must have received a minimum of five reviews between January 1st – December 31st, 2014.
Geographic winners are based on the location of the homeowner (where the work was done), not on the location of the company.
Winners are determined based on our proprietary ‘Best of Award’ Reputation Rank algorithm, which uses a number of different factors (more than 15) each uniquely weighted. It’s more than simply number of reviews and the score.
NOTE: Category search results pages are in no way connected to the Best of Awards.
NEW THINGS FOR 2014 THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
In order to drive a higher level in trust and value in our Best of Awards we will be recognizing our Best of Companies for all the services they provide versus for one specific category. The goal of our Best of Awards is to provide homeowners with an indication of which companies are the best, and this change gets us closer to doing that.
After December 15th, 2014 reviews added through the HomeStars ‘Add A Review’ tool WILL NOT COUNT towards the Best of 2014 calculation. Only approved reviews added organically (directly to the site) by homeowners will be counted after this date until the deadline on December 31st at midnight PST.
We will announce the winners the week of January 19th, 2015. Best of Awards event info for the winners across Canada will follow shortly after that.
As always, if you have any Best of questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
Happy Best of Awards Season and good luck to all!
