What is Homelight
Homelight is an unbiased platform that helps you find local agents that best fits your needs using comprehensive analytics. They compile data from over 29 million real estate transactions and 2 million agents to help you find a top local agent. Homelight uses factors such as client reviews, transaction volume, and property type specialization to help match you with an agent that fits your needs. Agents listed on the platform are not able to pay to boost their ranking, as rankings are purely based on data. Homelight is free to use, and makes money from referral fees paid by agents.
