new1 jpegA week after the site’s global launch on March 27th, 2013, was featured in a segment on Portland’s KGW Newschannel 8. Via interviews with Househappy Founder & CEO, Kevin McCloskey, and Robyn Woodman from Business Development, KGW business reporter Joe Smith provides an overview of Househappy’s site and services, as well as a behind the scenes look into our offices in Portland’s Pearl District.

“The real estate industry is on the rebound and it just got another tool to help connect buyers with sellers,” said Smith. “It’s called, a website developed…with one goal in mind: Make it simple, keep it simple, and simply sell property.”

Smith’s segment highlights some of Househappy’s main features including:

  • Photo-driven property posts

  • User-friendly search filters

  • Comprehensive profiles to connect buyers, sellers, and brokers

However, the site is probably best summarized by McCloskey himself, who cites “visual search, simplicity, minimalism, and good design,” as Househappy’s defining principles. “It’s a visual search of properties for sale,” he continued. “Brokers, sellers, and buyers can search and post anywhere in the world for free.”
