Northeast Georgia Direct or NEGA Direct for short is a local owned website for the local community. NEGA Direct was created by Prize and Steve Fortmann, owners of Pure Web, who moved to the Tri County area. Their first step, as most people do when they move, was to find new contractors, doctors, a church, etc. They went to Google and searched for things like “Pediatrician” or ”Pest Control” but the search results that were returned were not what they were looking for, most were too far away and some were in other states! They began to wonder how accurate these nationwide search sites could be for a small community.
So they decided to build a community site that would include business listings, an event calendar, classified ads, and even articles on local flavor. They wanted something a little closer to home and that was more relevant to the area they lived in. Northeast Georgia Direct isn't just a website for searching out reputable companies to do business with, it is also a community portal where site visitors can get information on what is happening around them.
We are happy to call Northeast Georgia our home and look forward to serving you!
