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.

HomeLight was a tremendous resource for helping us find the perfect realtor to sell our Ephrata home. Our home sold the first day on the market!

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.

What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Oakland?

While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents in Oakland work for 6% of the home price.

No. All of the real estate agents you see on are unaffiliated with us. They do not pay to advertise on our site and we do not pay to list them. That's how we keep our recommendations objective.

We compare real estate agents on a variety of data points in their transaction history.
