HomeLight was very helpful in narrowing down the field of Realtors to choose from and importantly, giving an idea of the data and methodology behind the recommendations so I could feel confident in them.

...We found HomeLight, searched for agents with experience, and connected with our agent in one day. She helped us snag a property in a competitive part of town, largely due to her relationships in the area.
