Neighbors turn to Nextdoor everyday to find trusted, useful, and relevant local information to address their daily needs. One of the most popular conversations we hear happening in neighborhoods across the country is neighbors seeking recommendations for the best local professionals in their area. Contractors, gardeners, handymen, tutors, furniture assembly, dog walkers– you name it. In fact, neighbors have given over 40 million recommendations to date.
Take for instance Nextdoor member John K. in Bonita Springs, Florida. When looking for a reliable glass door installation expert, John turned to Nextdoor to see who his fellow Bonita Springs neighbors have used and loved. Neighbors connected John with someone nearby who had a huge selection of glass doors to choose from. They took their time to educate John on each available option, laying out the pros and cons and left the final decision up to him. John shared with us that the installation was scheduled quickly and performed professionally, and he is extremely happy with the results and his overall experience.
We are constantly making improvements that not only provide neighbors with more relevant information, but also connect them to the best local professionals to help get everyday jobs done.
