This week on the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio’s All About Real Estate edition, Marla Ramaglia, director of marketing with Consult a Home Pro, joins co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick.
Consult a Home Pro links homeowners to contractors. This network group of home service providers makes it easy for homeowners to find anything to do with home maintenance, repairs, renovations and more, from home inspections to a full home build.
Some contractors that work with Consult a Home Pro are remodelers, electricians, plumbers, foundation repair, mold, paint, windows, siding, flooring and even lawn maintenance and landscaping, to name a few.
Sometimes with home repairs and projects, it’s difficult to know exactly what kind of help you will need. The Consult a Home Pro website and app make it easy to find what you are looking for, but even still, there is always someone available on the phone to answer your questions and point you in the right direction.
Contractors must apply to be members of Consult a Home Pro to be referred to homeowners. Membership includes feature coverage on the Consult a Home Pro website and app as well as access to monthly networking meetings and lunch and learns where members network, share best practices and share leads.
If a contractor wants to join the Consult a Home Pro group, simply fill out the online application to begin the vetting process. The Consult a Home Pro team checks references, valid business license and insurance, complaints with the Better Business Bureau and finally, Consult a Home Pro emails its own members to see if anyone has worked with that contractor before and has negative or positive takeaways from the experience.
“We vet them thoroughly,” said Ramaglia. “When we refer a contract to you, we have already completed a background check.”
Membership with Consult a Home Pro helps uphold credibility within the industry. If a contractor does not consistently perform to the expectations of the homeowner, Consult a Home Pro maintains the right to revoke membership.
Since its launch over 10 years ago, Consult a Home Pro has built a loyal fan base with members like AquaGuard Foundation Solutions and Ackerman Security Systems, just to name a few.
“We have big companies, small companies and everything in between,” said Ramaglia. “It’s a nice mix.”

Consult a Home Pro is specific to the Atlanta market, but just recently has started expanding to “territories” that cover all of Georgia. Any contractor looking to expand their business and network should consider joining.
Homeowners can pick up a membership directory from Consult a Home Pro at the Atlanta Home Show. The event kicks off at September 9 and ends September 11 at Cobb Galleria Centre.
