About Homii

Homii is a user-friendly online service that quickly and easily connects homeowners to reputable contractors. AT NO COST TO THE HOMEOWNER!

Our unique algorithm will instantly put you in touch with top local tradesmen and tradeswomen who specialize in the type of work you need done. Homeowners choose who they want to do the job, based on the contractor’s profile – previous ratings, testimonials, credentials, images, and more!

Once you make your choice, the contractor gets down to business! After your project(s) are complete, you can write reviews based on your experience – good or bad. The reviews will build a collective knowledge base that will help homeowners make the best hiring decisions.

How We Started

My name is Tyler Rosen – Founder and CEO of Homii. I learned about the challenges of finding reliable contractors after a terrible ice storm destroyed homes all across Toronto, Canada in December 2013.

The home I grew up in was badly damaged and I started trying to track down reputable contractors to help us. No luck. We had no power and the temperature in our house plummeted. When I woke up one morning shivering in my bed, I could see my own breath. The next day I decided to take matters into my own hands.

I made a list of the parts of the house that needed to be repaired and began to make calls day after day. Very few contractors even bothered to respond. It was then that I realized an opportunity for improvement on the services currently available for homeowners to connect with contractors.

Homii is the perfect solution for every homeowner who has ever felt stressed when planning a home renovation. Together, we will expand our online community of homeowners who share their experiences in order to help each other find the best contractors. Studies show that 62% of internet users read reviews written by fellow homeowners and 80% say that recommendations influenced their buying decision.

From small home repair and maintenance jobs to major remodelling or building projects, Homii connects homeowners and the best home improvement professionals in your city.

Homii Foundation

Our Mission is to help those who are less fortunate and give back to the community. We are excited to:

Donate 5% of Homii’s revenues to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and others in the city to help eradicate homelessness in Toronto. The Homii Foundation will take part in Tyler’s long running clothing drive campaigns and always welcomes clothing donations.

Give tangible help including gift-in-kind donations of food, clothing and shelter to those who are homeless or in jeopardy of becoming homeless.

Support and encourage literacy, education and training for employment as the equipping means for self support and stabilization. We work to assist those for whom a self-sustaining lifestyle is beyond their abilities.

Advocate for a future where homeless individuals are loved and cared for while at the same time expected to work towards self-sustaining futures.

Teach people to live in healthy, supportive relationships, which provide for spiritual, emotional and physical support with personal accountability.

Create opportunities for donors and volunteers to experience making a personal difference in the lives of the people who seek help.

Aspire to provide an environment in which staff, donors and volunteers are not afraid to have fun. We foster the ability to choose an attitude of laughter, joy and greatness, and desire living life to its fullest every day.

There are more people becoming homeless for the first time now, compared to any other time in Toronto’s history. We are on the front lines of providing clothing, safe shelter and other life-giving support to people in need. Become the change.
