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!

HomeLight was excellent in finding a real estate agent to sell our home, which took only 4 days! They offered various agents, all of which were top agents in our area. We couldn’t have been happier!

It’s amazing to have a company care about you and getting you settled into your home. I’d highly recommend seeking HomeLight when you need a home!

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Oakland?

It's going to depend on the temperature of the Oakland housing market but we generally recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Oakland?

On average, the top performing 5% of seller's agents generally command a higher selling price (+9%) than the average real estate agent. The top performing 5% of buyer's agents generally save their clients 2.5% more than the average real estate agent at closing. 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.

Why do I need to hire a licensed real estate agent in Oakland?

Always ensure you’re working with a trained, accredited real estate professional. That's the best way to protect you and your property. Every listing agent should be prepared to deliver proof of their license to sell in your area.
