The best way to find a real estate agent.
HomeLight uses actual sales data and client reviews to find the best real estate agent for you. We’re a small team of talented people in San Francisco and Phoenix, excited to change the face of real estate.
When founder Drew Uher and his wife set out to buy their first home, it was next to impossible to find a decent real estate agent. There was no easy way to research an agent’s historical performance, online review sites were unreliable, and after working with several different agents it was clear that not all of them were created equal.
That’s why we created HomeLight - the best way to find a great real estate agent.
With over 2 million agents and 29 million transactions in our database, we can help connect you with a top agent based on their actual skills and experience. Selling or buying a home is often the largest financial transaction of one’s life, so don’t trust that to just anyone. Let us help find the right real estate agent for you today.
