HOUSEMASTER HOME INSPECTION PRESENTS
$10,000 PRIZE TO LUCKY LOCAL HOMEOWNER
Laurel, Maryland ? Katalin Clendenin of Laurel, Maryland is the grand-prize winner of the annual HouseMaster ?Find It and Fix It? sweepstakes, winning a $10,000 prize to help renovate, redecorate or simply enjoy her home. HouseMaster is North America?s oldest home inspection franchise organization with 380 offices, including an office in the Laurel area.
?There were more than 400,000 entries to the sweepstakes, so I am very surprised and pleased that the winner is one of our local residents?, said Dwight Reynolds, who operates one of the organization?s largest franchises from his Rockville, Maryland office, and who presented the check to a happy Clendenin.
?This couldn?t have come at a better time,? Clendenin said. Recently, Clendenin, her six-month-old baby, and husband have been living off of one salary as she is currently on unpaid maternity leave. ?This really helps,? she adds.
HouseMaster ran advertisements on two of HGTV?s popular shows, ?House Hunters,? and ?House Detective,? which both fall under a very popular real estate related line up. Kathleen Austin Kuhn, President and CEO of HouseMaster noted, ?Most of our customers are people who are looking for expert advice on real estate related matters.
?Our goal at HouseMaster is to educate consumers on how to find a quality home inspector,? says Kuhn.
?When they log on to our web site and register for a contest, they begin to understand that HouseMaster is the name to look for in quality home inspections.?
The sweepstakes ran from September 1, 2004 through November 1, 2004, and similar sweepstakes are planned for the future. For additional information, log on to www.housemaster.com or call 800-356-7808.
