When we first started searching for a home in Dallas from out of state we were overwhelmed with Realtors and choices. HomeLight connected us with a Realtor who helped us close on a home in 45 days and the process was flawless.

The HomeLight website was extremely easy to use and I got the best referrals I could have.
