To help maximize your chances of receiving referrals from HomeLight, we ask that you take a few moments to complete your profile. A compelling profile will set you apart from the competition and help buyers and sellers know why they should choose you to be their agent. Information in your profile is also used in HomeLight’s agent recommendation algorithm to determine which agents are the best fit for a given buyer or seller.
To complete your profile, log in to your HomeLight account by clicking here. After you log in, click the “Profile” link located in the upper-right corner of the page.
Once you have arrived at your profile, you will see a banner on the right side of the screen labeled “Complete Your Profile.” This banner is where you’ll see the steps to completing your profile. Each text in blue is clickable to navigate you through these steps.
Sign the referral agreement - When you first sign in to your account, you’ll be prompted to electronically sign the HomeLight referral agreement. *Please note, you must sign the referral agreement in order to be eligible to receive referrals from HomeLight.*
Upload past transactions - HomeLight uses your real estate transaction data from the past 3 years to match buyers and sellers with the best possible agent. To ensure your transaction history is accurate, we ask that you upload and verify your last 3 years of transaction history. Once it has been uploaded, please email email@example.com or your account manager with the proper verification documentation. To see our template requirements, click here. *Please note, you must have a minimum of 15 verified transactions from the last 2 years on your account.*
Add your location preferences - Your location preferences will help HomeLight filter referrals for the areas that you are willing to serve. Please note that you must first upload and verify your transactions in order for the location preferences option to be available. See example here.
*Please note, you must have a minimum of 5 verified transactions from the last 2 years on your account in order to access this section.*
Specify your referral settings - You can also filter referrals according to your minimum price point, the types of properties you work with, and the types of transactions you specialize in.
Personalize your biography - Your agent biography should tell the story of your career that highlights your experience and accomplishments.
Ask your clients for reviews - Real reviews from real clients will help potential clients feel more comfortable choosing you as their agent. You can copy the URL link of your profile and provide the link to your clients personally. You can also share this link on social media, your website, or in your email signature. For further instructions, click here.
Confirm your contact info - Confirming your contact information verifies that your HomeLight referrals are sent to the right phone number and email address. Ensure that your phone number and email address are both properly verified, then complete the remaining fields to provide additional contact information. You will receive an email to your email address to confirm it. You will also receive a text to your mobile number and must reply back to the message with the verification code it provided.
Add recommendations - As an agent, you can add recommendations that have been sent to you from your clients. This differs from reviews in that reviews must come from a unique user and testimonials can be added by you.
Add certifications and awards - If you’ve received any awards or certifications you would like potential clients to know about, you can add them here.
Upload a profile picture - Select a recent professional looking photo that is well-lit and clear.
