About Us

Changing the face of real estate, one happy homeowner at a time.

Get Started

HomeLight empowers people to make smarter decisions during one of life’s most important moments:
buying or selling their home.

Our Story

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, let alone a buyer. 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.


Now, we're so much more. Since launching in 2010, HomeLight has connected thousands of clients with top local real estate agents, investors, and online resources. We've designed a line of data-driven real estate products to make it easier to make smarter decisions throughout the process of buying or selling a home.
