, Canada’s new sales financing service from CommunityLend Inc., is the exclusive financing sponsor for HomeStar’s Best of 2010 Awards.

HomeStars is a growing online community of homeowners and over 2 million home improvement companies throughout North America which offers a free service for homeowners to find reputable home improvement companies by searching its database. Homeowners write reviews based on their home improvement experiences – both good and bad. This builds a collective knowledge base that is invaluable in helping homeowners make better decisions on whom to hire.

“We are proud to be sponsoring the Best of 2010 Awards at HomeStars this year.” said CEO of CommunityLend, Michael Garrity. “Canadian home improvement companies work hard to keep their customers happy and to get referrals through HomeStars so they can grow their business.
