How do I get referrals from HomeLight?

HomeLight's matching algorithm matches you with qualified referrals who are serious about buying or selling. 

Our algorithm considers the following performance metrics:

  • Geographic, property type, and price point expertise based on historical transactions
  • Transaction volume by year
  • Average sale price vs average listing price
  • Average days on market
  • Qualitative customer reviews from prior clients
  • Fast initial response to HomeLight referrals and timely updates through the HomeLight agent portal
  • Success rate with HomeLight referrals

Please note that, since we cannot guarantee referrals, we are unable to provide a timeline for when you may start to receive them.

In order to provide a truly unbiased agent recommendation to each client, we do not offer the opportunity to pay for promotions or increased visibility.
