A platform seeking to link contractors and homeowners who need work done is debuting in D.C.

EFynch’s expansion in the area includes a presence in Arlington, Va., and a new team member to lead the efforts.

The Baltimore-based startup launched in September, 2016, our sister site Technical.ly Baltimore reported.

The platform looks to help both parties involved in a home improvement job. It offers homeowners a place to search for contractors based on their expertise, gather bids in one place and ultimately choose who they want to perform the work. For contractors, it’s a place to find work, and the visibility can help with marketing. Cofounder Teris Pantazes stressed that information is shared privately over the platform.

The decision to move into to D.C. grew out of Pantazes’ observations that some of the platform’s contractors work in Baltimore, but live between the two cities.

“D.C. is a very competitive area for home improvement and, with competition, [customers] expect a lower price for a very high quality product,” Pantazes said. He believes that plays to the platform’s strengths.

The D.C. expansion will be led by Charles Paul, who was the former ambassador to the U.S. from the Marshall Islands. Paul is now a cofounder of the company, Pantazes said.

“From the moment I started talking about EFynch, he really understood it,” Pantazes said.

With the expansion, a new office in Arlington and hiring is in the works, Pantazes said.

“We have a lot of relationships with a lot of different groups [in D.C.] that can really help us expand,” he said.
