POWER OF ATTORNEY

The undersigned hereby constitutes and appoints each 
of Joanne Hawkins, Tanya M. Stanich, Scott Cammarn and 
Matt Packey, signing singly, as the undersigned's true 
and lawful attorney-in-fact to:

(1)	execute for and on behalf of the undersigned, in 
the undersigned's capacity as an officer and/or 
director of Tree.com, Inc. (the "Company"), Forms 3, 4 
and 5 in accordance with Section 16(a) of the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules 
thereunder (the "Exchange Act"), as well as the Form 
ID to obtain and/or renew EDGAR codes for use in 
connection with the filing of Forms 3, 4 and 5 and any 
other related documentation;

(2)	do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf 
of the undersigned which may be necessary or desirable 
to complete and execute any such Form 3, 4 or 5, Form 
ID or other related documentation, complete and 
execute any amendment or amendments thereto, and 
timely file such forms or documentation with the 
United States Securities and Exchange Commission and 
any stock exchange or similar authority;

(3)	take any other action of any type whatsoever in 
connection with the foregoing which, in the opinion of 
such attorney-in-fact, may be of benefit to, in the 
best interest of, or legally required by, the 
undersigned,
 it being understood that the documents 
executed by such attorney-in-fact on behalf of the 
undersigned pursuant to this Power of Attorney shall 
be in such form and shall contain such terms and 
conditions as such attorney-in-fact may approve in 
such attorney-in-fact's discretion; and 

(4)	in connection with the preparation and filing of 
Forms 3, 4 and 5, seek or obtain, as the undersigned's 
attorney-in-fact and on the undersigned's behalf, 
information regarding transactions in the Company's 
securities from any third party, including brokers, 
employee benefit plan administrators and trustees, and 
the undersigned hereby authorizes any such person to 
release any such information to such attorney-in-fact 
and approves and ratifies any such release of 
information. 

The undersigned hereby grants to each such attorney-
in-fact full power and authority to do and perform any 
and every act and thing whatsoever requisite, 
necessary, or proper to be done in connection with the 
exercise of any of the rights and powers herein 
granted, as fully to all intents and purposes as the 
undersigned might or could do if personally present, 
with full power of substitution or revocation, herby 
ratifying and confirming all that such attorney-in-
fact, or such attorney-in-fact's substitute or 
substitutes, shall lawfully do or cause to be done by 
virtue of this Power of Attorney and the rights and 
powers herein granted.  The undersigned acknowledges 
that the foregoing attorneys-in-fact, in serving in 
such capacity at the request of the undersigned, are 
not assuming, nor is the Company assuming, any of the 
undersigned's responsibilities to comply with Section 
16 of the Exchange Act.


This Power of Attorney shall remain in full force and 
effect until the undersigned is no longer required to 
file Forms 3, 4, and 5 with respect to the 
undersigned's holdings of and transactions in 
securities issued by the Company, unless earlier 
revoked by the undersigned in a signed writing 
delivered to the foregoing attorneys-in-fact.  In the 
case of Joanne Hawkins and Tanya M. Stanich, this 
power of attorney shall terminate on the tenth 
business day following the completion of the spin-off 
of the Company by its parent, IAC/InterActiveCorp.

This Power of Attorney does not relieve the 
undersigned from responsibility for compliance with 
the undersigned's obligations under the Exchange Act, 
including, without limitation, the reporting 
requirements under Section 16 of the Exchange Act.  
Additionally, although pursuant to this Power of 
Attorney the Company will use commercially reasonable
best efforts to timely and accurately file Section 16 
reports on behalf of the undersigned, the Company does 
not represent or warrant that it will be able to in 
all cases timely and accurately file Section 16 
reports on behalf of the undersigned due to various 
factors, including, but not limited to, the shorter 
deadlines mandated by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, 
possible time zone differences between the Company and 
the undersigned and the Company's need to rely on
other parties for information, including the 
undersigned and brokers of the undersigned.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned had caused this 
Power of Attorney to be executed as of this   23     day 
of July 2008.
