Robin Wilson and Homefree Partner to Make Home Renovations and Maintenance More Cost-Effective

Home Efficiency Expert Makes Home Repair Even Easier With Homefree

NEW YORK, NY and SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2007 -- Robin Wilson, who is widely known for creating efficiency for homeowners within their hectic lives, has partnered with Ethix Media, the makers of Homefree™, to make the entire homeownership process easier -- from renovations to maintenance. Wilson will sponsor Homefree for her clients at a special price through her Web site, www.robinwilsonhome.com.

Wilson has a reputation as the "Efficiency Expert" and works with her team to ensure renovation projects are completed "on-time and on-budget." She is a national spokesperson for the Hearst Magazines Home/Shelter Division and has completed residential and commercial projects nationwide, from a small studio to an 8,000 square foot home, and from lobbies and hallways to President Bill Clinton's Harlem office.

"Our goal is to provide innovative tools for today's homeowner," says Robin Wilson. "We all know the story of how a forgotten, simple maintenance task, such as removing leaves from the gutter in the fall -- which turns into ice in winter -- can cause costly repairs or renovation later. Using Homefree can help homeowners stay on top of these maintenance tasks to save time and money in the long run. Plus, Homefree creates an online inventory of household items which is important for insurance."

"Homefree was created with the intention of using technology to make homeownership less stressful by sending automatic email reminders about home maintenance," said Tom Blondi, CEO of Ethix Media. "Robin Wilson Home believes in the same technological integration during the renovation process. They do the building portion, and we take care of the maintenance. It's a perfect match."

Homefree (www.homefree.com) features personalized maintenance schedules that trigger helpful monthly email reminders. Homeowners get the information they need to make intelligent decisions about the upkeep of their homes. By simply glancing at the dashboard on their custom Homefree site, homeowners keep on top of home maintenance issues. Subscribers can regulate everything from seasonal home care to routine maintenance checks.
