My husband found HomeLight online. We looked at the different agents, filled out a short form, and the next thing we knew we got a call. They did it all. It was really simple and easy... We had our first offer in five days, and it closed a month later.

Mara K.

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.

Candi S

HomeLight did what it said...found me a phenomenal agent who was extremely responsive and took the time to answer all of my questions... HomeLight made it so easy to find the right agent to sell my home! I highly recommend their services!
