SAN ANTONIO, July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PCSgrades has announced the official launch of its San Antonio-based company, an exclusive review service for current and former military families to share reliable, top quality information on neighborhoods, REALTORS®, mortgage lenders, apartments, builders and more.
Once verified as a current or former military member or spouse through the website, individuals can use the free service to read or submit reviews on vendors or communities in different categories. The site was created to ease the stress due to a PCS (permanent change of station) by sharing information from fellow military families who have lived or are currently living in cities where families are stationed.
PCSgrades prides itself on being founded and managed by service members and spouses, including co-founders Todd Ernst and Tony Straw who still serve in the part-time reserves. Along with retired senior military leaders, the team also includes key spouses from across the Armed Forces, such as the 2010 Marine Corps Spouse of the Year, Erin Whitehead, and 2014 Air Force Spouse of the Year, Chris Pape.
"The term PCS is all too familiar to the military community. We also know it's a time of great stress when military families are struggling to find key information about a brand new location," said co-founder Todd Ernst. "So, we created PCSgrades to facilitate reviews from the people we trust the most, our fellow military families. This is what it looks like when the military community helps each other."
As the site and resources continue to grow, PCSgrades plans to add more categories for military families to share reviews on a wider variety of businesses and services as they move from military installation to military installation. The next planned additions include schools and service providers.
