Are you looking for a contractor who can install custom kitchen cabinets? How about an experienced babysitter or a plumber who can fix that leaky faucet once and for all?

Home team is a free, mobile app that makes it easier to find and hire the same trusted service providers your friends, family and coworkers use.

Instead of relying on reviews from strangers, Home Team helps you find the best local contractors and repairmen that already come with a stamp of approval.

And by joining networks applicable to you, you can also share the information of your service professionals with your friends and other people you trust.

This latest app developed by the innovative folks at the Microsoft Garage also helps you get organized quickly. Forget about keeping business cards. Home Team can easily import the contact information of all your repairmen and other service professionals.

Are you ready to take the headache out of managing your home? An early version of Home Team is available now for customer testing and feedback. Get more information by going here.
