We had the condo listed on a Sunday and the property sold quickly within a week and Escrow was also a breeze thanks to teamwork from a reputable Realtor who I couldn’t have found without HomeLight.

Within minutes of registering, I was getting calls from some of the best Realtors in my area and ended up closing within a month of my first call. I’m recommending HomeLight to friends and family. It’s an amazing service I’ll certainly use it again.

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.
