Launches With $3.5 Million in Seed Funding logoIt’s always interesting to see how a domain name will be used following a major sale. Last year,  was the broker of record for the sale of the domain name. Unfortunately, Igloo could not provide a comment regarding this domain name.

According to a post on Crunchbase Daily, just launched after receiving millions of dollars in seed funding from several well respect venture capital firms. Here’s what Crunchbase Daily had to say regarding the funding and launch of the new website:

Seattle-based home service professionals marketplace has launched with $3.5 million in seed funding from Andreessen Horowitz, Madrona Ventures, Redpoint, Bezos Expeditions, Two-Sigma Ventures, and Sherpa Foundry. aims to simplify the process of hiring home service professionals, providing homeowners with estimates for a list of home improvement tasks and a list of available contractors nearby. Launched as SeattleHomePro last year, has rebranded, now offering real-time estimates, and plans to eventually expand its service nationwide. is a short domain name and is not only descriptive, but it makes a great brand name as well. Seattle Home Pro understood this, and they are able to take what was once a local brand and make it a national brand with this new company name.

Prior to the sale of this domain name, appears to have been owned by a company in Belgium. At one point it appears to have been in use, and at another point, it was being used as a forwarder.
