Nancy Peterson
Founder & CEO

Nancy started HomeStars in 2006 after struggling through her own home renovation. She wanted to create something that would allow homeowners to find and hire the best home service pro for their home improvement projects.

Her business concept was simple: take word-of-mouth online and enable homeowners to share their home improvement experiences virtually. In 2006, she left a senior position at Kraft to start her own company.

15 years later, HomeStars is Canada’s #1 platform connecting homeowners with community-reviewed and verified home service pros across the nation.
