Unlike many other discount real estate companies, Assist-2-Sell does not discount its fee by eliminating services.
Reno, NV, January 24, 2008 --(PR.com)-- It's been 20 years since Mary LaMeres-Pomin and Lyle Martin left the "traditional" world of real estate to start Assist-2-Sell®, a full-service discount real estate company based in Reno, Nev. Today, hundreds of franchise offices throughout the United States and Canada utilize Assist-2-Sell's "Full-Service with $avings!"® program, saving consumers a significant amount of money without eliminating any of the service and support they need.
"I just laugh when people say we aren't 'real' real estate brokers because it's simply not true. We do everything 'traditional' real estate companies do, we simply charge less," says Todd Tramonte, owner/broker of Assist-2-Sell Buyers & Sellers Realty in Dallas. "It feels great offering excellent service at an excellent value."
Assist-2-Sell's experienced brokers and agents handle everything throughout the entire process of selling a home, including:
* Helping price the home accurately;
* Implementing a targeted marketing campaign aimed at reaching active homebuyers directly—online and offline;
* Utilizing the MLS, as appropriate, as a marketing tool;
* Taking all phone calls;
* Showing the home to prospective buyers;
* Arranging for other agents to show the home;
* Pre-qualifying homebuyers;
* Helping the homebuyer obtain financing;
* Negotiating the purchasing agreement;
* Writing the sales contract;
* Handling all paperwork;
* Meeting with appraisers;
* Arranging for all inspections; and
* Supervising the closing.
Home sellers pay a low, flat fee, instead of a percentage of the home's sale price, only after their home has sold.
The Assist-2-Sell model was born out of frustration with the way real estate was being practiced. Recalls LaMeres-Pomin, "Home sellers had little choice but to pay high commissions with no assurance they'd receive high value. Because so many agents were struggling to secure their next listing, they spent less time marketing homes and more time marketing themselves."
Adds Martin, "Consumers were unhappy and a lot of agents were unhappy as well. We wanted to create a system that not only produced satisfied customers but also helped agents be more successful."
Assist-2-Sell helps franchise owners set up highly organized and efficient offices with trained support personnel and proven sales and marketing techniques. Offices that utilize the "Assist-2-Sell System" can easily handle the volume their lower fee generates, allowing them to operate profitably while still saving their customers a lot of money and providing a high level of service.
"I've been in business for only two months and I've already listed 24 homes. There hasn't been one potential client who has interviewed me and then listed with somebody else or decided to sell on their own," raves EJ Rosenberg, owner/broker of Assist-2-Sell Buyers & Sellers Value Realty in Black River Falls, Wis. "This system is too easy and it works. If you follow Assist-2-Sell's comprehensive training program, it's hard to imagine not being successful."
