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 a great experience. The recommended agents came prepared to discuss our home's value and what we would be able to sell it for. If we ever sell another house, we'll use HomeLight again!
