This symbol helps homeowners feel secure in knowing that this professional has passed casaGURU’s screening process. By clicking on the button, you will be taken to the casaGURU profile page for that professional where you can peruse reviews by homeowners and check out their ratings.

Hi Emer.  So can any professionals join casaGURU?  Are there special requirements to for realtors to join?  This site sounds very interesting.  I know that homeowners are always asking me about contractors that I can recommend.  Now I can turn them on to casaGURU as a good source of homeowner rated pros.

Hi Richard,

In answer to your question, yes and no, anyone - homeowner and professional - can join the community. However, in order to be a professional casaGURU GURU you need to be a qualified professional and supply some documentation to support that. In terms of realtors, any member of the Canadian Real Estate Associtation can join. We just ask for some documents to varify your identity and then you're good to go.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask me.
