    Contractor

    Why use Circl?

    Circl is your link to the rental market and all the home maintenance jobs that landlords and/or tenants often can’t or won’t do themselves. Our Circl Marketplace allows you to filter through and find the jobs you want and submit a bid by offering a quote dictating your price.

    What is the Circl Marketplace?

    Circl Marketplace is the first online forum for registered landlords and tenants to post Work Orders for jobs they need done. This allows contractors to have access to an unprecedented amount of jobs all in one place, and submit quotes to win a job. You, the contractor, can filter out and adjust your preferences to see only those jobs you want to do. Set alerts to be notified when a job matching your preferences is posted.

    Do I deal with landlords or tenants?

    Both landlords and tenants have access to the Circl Marketplace. Landlords can receive maintenance requests from tenants and choose to post their Work Order on Circl, or tenants can go straight to the Circl Marketplace and post a Work Order for whatever help they need.

    How do I submit a quote on a Work Order?

    Once you’ve found a job matching your preferences and skill-set, simply click on Submit Quote and name your price for the job on Circl. The landlord or tenant will be instantly notified of your quotation on their Work Order and respond accordingly.
