HomeLight provided a wonderful service. We were at our wits end with an agent that we exhausted our 6 month contract with trying to sell our rental... The agent was very nice and worked hard to get the house sold.

I had tried to sell my house 3 times. I went onto HomeLight and was matched with an agent right away. My house sold in 5 days! It's a wonderful service. I'd recommend it in a heartbeat!

HomeLight was easy to use... We had several people call us to help sell our home and we chose the one who best fit to our wants and needs. It was sold quickly and we were happy with the agent through the process! Thank you HomeLight!

I would have to say that HomeLight really helped me in regards to finding a great Realtor to get my home sold. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone, and was able to get my house sold in less than two months!
