HawkSwap was created by now Laurier graduate (still feels weird to write) Sunny Trochaniak, with the objective of putting some beer money back into your wallet. It is currently being maintained by Patrick Trochaniak and his team, Eric Lote, Shahrukh Reza, and Anthony Bogdan. It is a social exchange, and is free for students looking to buy and sell textbooks or find roommates in Waterloo.
For sellers, we make sure you get maximum exposure for your listings. Unlike Facebook groups, your listing won’t get buried each time someone makes a new post. Since all our listings are categorized, and with our advanced search function, textbook-seekers can find exactly what they’re looking for. You also have the ability to manage your listings through the dashboard. Once it’s sold, you can mark it as such, and you won’t receive any more emails about your book that is already long gone.
For buyers, we make it as easy as possible for you to track down the book you need. Once you’ve found it, contact the seller, determine a time and place, and you’re done. No longer do you have to scavenge through multiple pages of Facebook threads and discussions. You can also post a listing in the “Wanted” section, meaning all the work is done for you!
