(Tuesday, January 16, 2007) - Assist-2-Sell, America's leading discount real estate company, is ranked No. 48 in Entrepreneur Magazine's 28th annual "Franchise 500" listing.

Each year Entrepreneur Magazine looks at hundreds of franchises and carefully examines such things as number of years in business, startup costs and terminations, as well as financial strength, stability and growth rate. With that information, they are able to compile the "Franchise 500" as a research tool for people who want to own their own business.
"We've always believed that Assist-2-Sell's unique business model offers real estate professionals a great opportunity to own their own business and distinguish themselves with homebuyers and home sellers," said Mary LaMeres-Pomin, co-founder and chief executive officer of Assist-2-Sell.
