The lead generation is appreciated but confusing. Too much calling, emailing, texting. I try to contact most leads but few return my calls or emails. Sometimes they are confused as to why I am calling. Some, I think, just tell HOUZZ something because they got too far into the query.

Pros

After almost 10 years with HOUZZ I feel the cost is worth it. We have a large metropolitan area we include in our advertising. The ability to show potential customers our projects is the number 1 reason we use it. Although many features have been added, the only other one we use is the lead generating aspect. It takes attention and time but we do get some good leads that turn into projects.

Cons

All of the added features are included in other software we already use such as DropBox , Quickbooks, and Asana. Starting over did not make sense for us. I have looked at some of the features but they appeared to take too much time to get started.

Response from Houzz

Hi, Jo, thank you for your review and for trusting Houzz for so long! We're happy to hear advertising and our leads have helped your business grow, but would love to show you how to get so much more out of some of our other features. We encourage you to connect with your client success manager so that we can show you all the capabilities available to you! Additionally, we really appreciate your feedback on how the lead system operates and we've communicated your concerns to our product team.

It's been a great experience. The training videos are great. If I get stuck I just refer back to the videos.

Pros

I like Houzz Pro because it has everything a Designer needs in one system.

Cons

I do not like that there are only leads or Clients in the system. And you cannot pick and choose who to send emails to. You have to send a campaign to the whole group. I like to send an email to certain zip codes or too one Management group. I haven't discovered how to do that yet.

Beware of predatory business practices

I wouldn't recommend them to anyone and would warn anyone interested in evaluating the trial to be very wary of the predatory business policies. They have no interest in providing any leniency to errors and will continue to bill you for up to 12 months after requesting a cancellation.

Pros

From a software perspective the platform seems fine. We evaluated it for use but decided not to proceed with a purchase. Unfortunately, due to an administrative oversight, we failed to cancel the free trial and have been being billed for the past 12 months for a product that we neither used, needed nor wanted. After attempting to contact the company - they refused to process any refund or cancel the subscription. So they continue to bill us. As a small business this is a non-trivial expense. Very unethical business practice.

Cons

Houzz pro has demonstrated deplorable & predatory business practices. While we respect their prerogative to adhere to every letter of their trial policy - we find their practice to be extremely unethical. After contacting them to inform them that there was an oversight in the cancellation of the subscription - they refused to stop billing us for the product, even though we never used it beyond the trial date. We are a small business and this is not a trivial expense. As a business, they certainly have the ability to practice ethically and cancel subscriptions in the cases of administrative oversight, given evidence that the product was never used beyond the trial date. Throwing their hands in the air and pointing to the policy as though they are powerless to do anything is extremely disappointing. Even if they kept the payments for the first few months of the oversight and then canceled the subscription, that would have been acceptable.

Response from Houzz

Michael - this is absolutely not the experience we want you to have - we are happy to make this right - please contact me - sending you my info - Chloe Siegmann

I find it to be a fairly priced, powerful suite of tools for small companies.

Pros

I like that it's a suite of tools - everything in one place.

Cons

Deficiencies - at least for the project types I work on - with the editing capabilities of the estimate tool

Reasons for Switching to Houzz Pro

I had to move fast and everything from tools to customer support has enabled me to do a lot quickly. To add, Houzz Pro tech support is fantastic. I've requested features that are being reviewed by the technical team and I haven't received any follow up on those but overall an excellent suite of tools.

Response from Houzz

Thanks for the feedback Gil - would love to hear more on how we can improve the estimate editing capabilities. I'm sending you my contact information directly - Liza

Pros

Houzz Pro offers us the ability to get estimates out quickly and accurately and helps us manage the flow of jobs. It’s a real time saver.

Cons

Have not found anything we don’t like yet but I would like the ability to 3d draw exterior options for people as well as decks and landscaping.
