Houzz is a social media platform designed for consumers who want to build or remodel their home by bringing all of the experts in the industry together in one place. It allows builders, designers, realtors, etc. to reach potential clients by digitizing their portfolio, allowing for consumer and colleague reviews, and answering questions directly related to past or current projects.
Your Home Builders Association of Greenville has a partnership with Houzz that allows members access to special programs, and to verify their membership with the Home Builders Association of Greenville as well as the National Association of Home Builders on their Houzz profile.
If all of this sounds like gibberish to you, then you should strongly consider attending our Houzz University class on August 18th, where a Houzz professional will help you set up your profile. On the other hand, if you have a Houzz page already and want to learn how to improve it, you should attend the second class, Houzz Tips, Tricks, and Trends.
August 18th, 2016 at the Home Builders Association of Greenville office. The classes will be taught by a Houzz agent and sponsored by the Approved Professional Builder program. Pricing will be as follows: $13 for PWB and SMC Council members, $19 for HBA members, $25 for nonmembers.
