I used HomeLight to find a real estate agent since I wasn’t in the city where the property was located. I found a great agent to sell my rental property. It was easy to use and saved me a lot of time!

I had a home that I couldn't sell for 10 years. I decided to try HomeLight and chose the first agent they provided. My home sold immediately! If I sell another home, I will definitely call HomeLight.

Thanks to HomeLight I was connected with my realtors, Steve and Karen. The process of getting an offer and contract through closing was a smooth transaction.

So, whether you're buying or selling your house, your odds of making more money on the transaction are higher if you work with a top performing agent.
