I used HomeLight to find a real estate agent since I wasn’t in the city where the property was located. I found a great agent to sell my rental property. It was easy to use and saved me a lot of time!

I had a home that I couldn't sell for 10 years. I decided to try HomeLight and chose the first agent they provided. My home sold immediately! If I sell another home, I will definitely call HomeLight.

I contacted HomeLight to connect me with an agent that specialized in waterfront property. HomeLight quickly provided contact information for two agents that could meet my needs.
