HomeStars is dedicated to helping Canadian homeowners connect with local trusted pros for their home improvement projects. We enable homeowners to make a confident hiring decision by providing them with our different trust tools such as Star Score, recent reviews, verification badge and a Best of Award! The HomeStars Best of Award is so far the most popular trust tool used by pros as well as homeowners. These awards help you hire pros who have demonstrated consistency, professional integrity and unparalleled customer service in your neighbourhood.
What is a HomeStars Best of Award?
There are three types of HomeStars Best of Awards that are given to Canadian pros to recognize their hard work, professional consistency, excellent customer service and dedication to their trade. These awards are exclusively given to only those pros who have successfully passed our winning criteria:
HomeStars Best of Newly Listed Award
HomeStars Best of Newly Listed Award is a new award we unveiled in 2022. It rewards pros in their first year with HomeStars who hit the ground running. Only those pros who are verified, have a Star Score above 85, and have a minimum of 3 or 6 reviews* in their first year with HomeStars are eligible to win the HomeStars Best of Newly Listed Award.
HomeStars Best of Award
HomeStars Best of Award has been handed out every year since 2009 to celebrate pros who stand out from the pack when it comes to their commitment to excellence. Only those pros who are verified, have a Star Score above 85, and have a minimum of 6 to 12 reviews within the calendar year of 2022 with HomeStars to be eligible to win the HomeStars Best of Award.
HomeStars Best of the Best Award
In 2022 we introduced the HomeStars Best of the Best Award, designed to honour the pros who’ve risen to the top of their fields by winning Best of Awards yearly. Consistency is integral to our values at HomeStars, and we believe the pros who embody this trait deserve to be recognized with an extra unique distinction. Only those pros who meet the criteria for a Best of Award and have won the Best of Award for 3 or more consecutive years, are eligible to win the HomeStars Best of the Best Award.
How To Identify A HomeStars Best of Award Pro?
Every HomeStars Best of Award winner is given a special winning badge to celebrate their award. You can identify the winners by these badges on their HomeStars profile, on their official website or even on social media.
Award-winning pros also add this winning badge to their vehicle. This way you can identify a HomeStars Best of Award winner on the road as well!
