I was extremely happy with HomeLight's service. HomeLight... provided 2 extremely well qualified real estate agents. We felt we could not loose with either of them. The agent we chose was wonderful and went above and beyond. We sold in 3 days

When I decided to sell my house I was at a loss as to where to start. I came across HomeLight. What blessing that was. My Realtor was great. I would recommend HomeLight to anyone selling a house. It is a great place to start.
