Assist-2-sell: North America's Largest Discount Real Estate Company Adds 12 Franchises
RENO, NEVADA (Tuesday, September 03, 2002) - Assist-2-Sell(R), North America's largest residential discount real estate company, added 12 new franchises in August 2002.
The expansion brings the total number of Assist-2-Sell franchises in 41 states and Canada to 205, up 6.21 percent from July 2002.
News of these latest franchise openings comes just two months after Assist-2-Sell announced it added 18 new owner operated franchises in the second quarter of 2002.
Assist-2-Sell franchises provide the services of a professional real estate broker, for a single, low flat fee. Assist-2-Sell's "Full Service With $avings(TM)" process enables home sellers to save thousands of dollars in commissions compared to paying 6 percent.
Assist-2-Sell cofounders and co-owners Mary LaMeres-Pomin and Lyle E. Martin announced the August additions today. Most new franchises have opened; they'll all be open by early October. Assist-2-Sell projects it'll have at least 500 locally owned and operated franchises in the United States and Canada by the fourth quarter of 2005.
"If the current rate of growth continues as we expect, Assist-2-Sell will have at least 300 franchises by the fourth quarter of 2003--an increase of about 50 percent from our current total in just more than one year," LaMeres-Pomin and Martin said in a joint statement. "Our company is eager and prepared to handle this tremendous growth, which enables us to achieve our goal of helping increased numbers of home sellers."
Owners of new Assist-2-Sell franchises attended the company's training school at its corporate headquarters in Reno, Nev. The company requires its franchise owners to be experienced residential real estate brokers.
A privately held company, Assist-2-Sell was founded in 1987. The company is able to charge low fees thanks to its high-volume system, backed by an experienced team of real estate professionals that handle everything from advertising and showing the home to overseeing the closing process.
The new Assist-2-Sell franchises are in: Albuquerque, N.M.; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Sedona, Ariz.; Arcadia, Calif.; Edina, Minn.; Denver, Colo.; Vista, Calif.; Naples, Fla.; Scotts Depot, W.V.; Charlottesville, Vg., Eastern Dupage County, Ill.; and West Miami, Fla.
