BOSTON, Dec. 20, 2012 -- Realty Direct, a full-service residential real estate discount brokerage firm, today announced a partnership with Handybook, a Boston-based startup that provides quick and reliable household service provider booking. Through the partnership, Realty Direct customers can instantly book moving help, cleaning services and handymen online, without the hassle of comparing price quotes or matching availability.

Handybook offers a simple solution to a growing problem consumers face: quickly finding and booking reliable household service providers. Those in the process of moving have little time to sift through online reviews, phone book listings and odd hours to find a reliable person to clean, assemble furniture, help with moving and complete odd jobs. Through Handybook, Realty Direct customers based in Boston can instantly search for and book services with reliable handymen and household service providers, making the next steps after finding and purchasing a home even easier.

"Our partnership with Handybook will give customers the best access to cleaners and handymen in the Boston area," said Tom Truong, Realty Direct Agent in Boston. "One of the challenges our customers face is the shortage of moving help, cleaners and handymen, especially during the holidays, spring cleaning season and the September 1st moving period. We're always striving to deliver great value and quality service to our customers—and through our partnership with Handybook, we will continue to deliver on our customer promise."

Realty Direct offers solutions to all real estate needs based on the local housing market, information about new homes and resales. In the Boston market, Realty Direct customers can use Handybook's online platform and reliable service providers to make moving or selling a home even easier.
