I had tried to sell my house 3 times. I went onto HomeLight and was matched with an agent right away. My house sold in 5 days! It's a wonderful service. I'd recommend it in a heartbeat!

HomeLight found a number of Realtors and provided a baseline for me to compare them. We were in a bit of a time crunch to sell and HomeLight made finding a local agent quick and easy.
