Who We Are

We're building the future of real estate - today.

HomeLight is the essential technology platform used by hundreds of thousands of homebuyers and sellers to partner with top real estate agents and win at any step of the real estate journey, whether that's finding a top agent, securing a competitive mortgage, or ensuring on-time, easy close.

HomeLight facilitates billions of dollars of real estate on its platform every year. Our vision is a world where every real estate transaction is simple, certain, and satisfying for all.

We pride ourselves on our company culture - but don't just take it from us. We've been recognized as a best place to work by Forbes. We're committed to diversity both internally and externally through programs such as our Black Real Estate Agent Program with NAREB.
