The Geebo Dish


Impressed by what you have seen here at Geebo? We hoped so! Geebo was created to be more than just another "regional electronic classified" site. Geebo is a community, created by people, for people and designed to fill the void left by online classified ads. Geebo is neighbors helping neighbors. We also felt we could do a better job of connecting buyers and sellers online than our local town newspaper.

As your neighbor we would like to keep you up to date on all the exciting happenings, changes and offerings at Geebo. Founder, Greg Collier, invites you to track Geebo's progress by following him via Twitter - Follow Greg!

Geebo, pronounced G-Bo, is unique in the dot.com world because it isn't constrained by venture capital funding. The Geebo business is modeled after a traditional brick-and-mortar business, rather than the get-in, get-out quick Internet model. "We are in this for the long haul, and our strategy has always been, one community at a time--expanding as it makes sense. That ideal still stands!" says Collier.

As an upstart web site originally based out of Sacramento, CA, Geebo was launched as a place for people to buy and sell used items as well as post job announcements. Beyond the online classifieds, however, Geebo created a sense of community for all who visited through their clean design, open forums and genuine interest in their visitors. People shared their experiences and knowledge, asking questions, getting answers and being truly connected to others in their area. Geebo succeeded in connecting individuals in a medium based upon disconnection.

Geebo's philosophy is that the advent of the global electronic community shouldn't mean the abandonment of the conventional community. It should serve as an enhancement.

Geebo boasts multiple enhancements over their competition, but the two most important is Geebo's commitment to safety and privacy. Geebo visitors are provided with a heightened degree of safety and privacy by Geebo's practice of manually monitoring every post intended for publication. You look out for your neighbors. Geebo looks out for you.

Geebo went live in May of 2000 to an enthusiastic and positive response. Since then, Geebo has expanded to include San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago, Dallas, Austin, Phoenix, Washington, DC, and Seattle. To date, Geebo has spread to over 160 communities nationwide.

Headquartered in McLean, VA, Geebo.com is comprised of a team of dedicated and talented professionals who keep up the site's edgy appearance and visitor convenience under Collier's direction. A special shout out goes to the following people for their devotion, creativity, resourcefulness, and patience! - Dmitry, Thomas, Kathleen, Amy, Zoli, Sam, Raleigh and Sultan. Thank you!

Geebo sincerely appreciates your support and looks forward to providing you with the community and classified experience you deserve.
