Seattle startup Fresh Chalk focuses on recommendations from friends

Fresh Chalk has a section within the Real Estate category for Realtor recommendations. Akin to Yelp, clients would need to recommend you to boost your ranking, but business owners can claim their business listings by contacting Fresh Chalk. In doing so, business owners can verify their contact information, change the photo on their listing and be notified when they receive recommendations.

[…] The site allows users to create profiles and offer their own recommendations across more than 250 categories. They can search through service providers to see which have been recommended by their friends.

Here’s how Fresh Chalk describes the process:

When you follow a person on Fresh Chalk, their recommendations become part of your recommendation ecosystem: they show up higher in search results, they’re linked from the top of your profile page, and you’ll get notified in our newsletter when that person adds a new recommendation. You should follow people whose recommendations would carry weight with you.
