HomeWise eliminates the hassles too often inherent in home remodeling and repair projects and equips DC Metro area homeowners to make the wisest possible choices about their largest asset - their home - all at no charge to the homeowner. After many years of home ownership, and some disappointing home improvement outcomes, company owner Debbie Farson recognized the need for a one-stop service to locate contractors who would return calls, show up on time, and follow through with high-quality work. Debbie's background as a lawyer (JD Georgetown 1989), homemaker, and home renovation veteran make her sensitive to the issues that can complicate home improvement projects. Debbie started this business in 2002 and, in 2011, changed the name from Home Solutions Connection to HomeWise Referrals to better describe the full range of services the company provides. Contractors in HomeWise's network are screened for proper licensing and insurance; clean complaint histories with BBB, consumer affairs, and other review resources; outstanding work; excellent references; and a solid business history. Once in the network, contractors are evaluated on every project and monitored to be sure their qualifications (license, insurance, clean complaint history) are kept up-to-date. Contractors pay a commission on referred work that results in closed business.
