Carlson’s Flooring of Geneva, IL – Awarded Best Of Houzz 2016

Over 35 Million Monthly Unique Users Nominated Best Home Building, Remodeling and Design Professionals in North America and Around the World

Geneva, IL – January 12, 2016 –  Carlson’s Flooring has won “Best Of Customer Service” on Houzz®, the leading platform for home remodeling and design. The 49 year-old, family owned company was chosen by the more than 35 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community from among more than one million active home building, remodeling and design industry professionals.

The Best Of Houzz is awarded annually in three categories: Design, Customer Service and Photography. Design award winners’ work was the most popular among the more than 35 million monthly users on Houzz. Customer Service honors are based on several factors, including the number and quality of client reviews a professional received in 2015. Architecture and interior design photographers whose images were most popular are recognized with the Photography award. A “Best Of Houzz 2016” badge will appear on winners’ profiles, as a sign of  their commitment to excellence. These badges help homeowners identify popular and top-rated home professionals in every metro area on Houzz.

“While we remain committed to provide exceptional products and pricing, ultimately our experience has been that the customers make the difference,” commented Lisa Carlson Nelson. “Personal connection is the major ingredient of the Carlson’s Flooring experience. For almost 50 years, we have served our customers as if they were family.”

“Anyone building, remodeling or decorating looks to Houzz for the most talented and service-oriented professionals” said Liza Hausman, vice president of Industry Marketing for Houzz.
