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!

The Realtor I worked with did an excellent job, and made the home selling process quick and easy. I would recommend the HomeLight service to anyone looking for a Realtor.
