Finding a good Realtor can be hit or miss, and can be costly if they don't price or market your house properly. Contacting Homelight for this referral worked out extremely well for us. Thank you!

I received an offer on the first day with the first showing for $11,000 more than my asking price. Other buyers didn’t even get to see the house. Thank you HomeLight for connecting me with Shelly.

I will surely recommend HomeLight... We had used another agent previously not associated with Homelight.com and were horribly disappointed. Overall we were very pleased and glad we used...Homelight for this transaction.
