Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

(b)

On April 24, 2007, Mark S. Powell notified the Board of Directors of HouseValues, Inc. (the “Company”) of his decision not to stand for re-election to the Board of Directors at the Company’s 2007 annual meeting of shareholders. Accordingly, Mr. Powell will cease to be a Director and Chairman of the Board as of the date of the annual meeting of shareholders, which is currently expected to be held on May 31, 2007. Mr. Powell’s decision not to stand for re-election did not result from a disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices. After more than seven years with HouseValues Mr. Powell has decided to dedicate his full energies to other interests.

 

Item 8.01 Other Events

On April 24, 2007, the Board elected Frank M. (“Pete”) Higgins as Mr. Powell’s successor as Chairman. Mr. Higgins will take office as Chairman immediately following Mr. Powell’s retirement from the Board as of the date of the annual meeting of shareholders.
