What Makes Homebloq Different?

We personally know every agent-partner

Each agent in our network is one we personally know and is someone for whom we can vouch. Why does this matter? The difference between using an experienced, awesome agent and not can mean losing out on your dream house, mishandling documents and closings, or even costing you money.

We are not stuck with One Fee Structure or Business model

Unlike traditional brokerages, we can help recommend agents that perfectly fit your preferences - whether that’s a traditional commission model, flat fee/discount brokerage, or something else.


We care about the consumer first

Managing brokers must cater to their agents, but we care about the home buyer, and everything we do is done to ensure you receive the best home buying experience possible - from beginning to end.

We Don’t Make Money Passing Off Your Personal Information

Unlike lots of other websites, we do not make money by selling or passing off your information to agents. You control when you want to connect with agents.

We Care about agent quality, not quantity

We define high quality agents as ones who are trustworthy and provide guidance and advice, with a strong track record and involvement in their associations. We care less about transaction volume and other quantity-based metrics that do not always correlate with quality.

Less is More

It is commonly known in the industry that fewer than 20% of agents earn 80% of the commissions, that’s why we choose to work with only those who are top performers, so you do not risk working with an inexperienced or bad agent.
