Sarasota, Fla. (June 6, 2017) As the real estate market tightens up in many areas across the country, more realtors are looking for a competitive edge in the field. Many are making their way to Help-U-Sell Real Estate, which has led to a 20% growth of new franchise offices since the last quarter of 2016.
To shed some light on the market shift back to the Help-U-Sell model, John Powell, Chief Development Officer, and Robert Stevens, Chief Operating Officer, recently sat down with Maria Patterson, Executive Editor of RISMedia, to share some unique insights on the success and sustainability of the 41-year old company.
Among the thoughts shared by John Powell, “Many brokers are discounting, which lowers their bottom-line profit. They need to be able to increase profitability. We, on the other hand, have a proven, 41-year system, which is built around our fee structure. Brokers save the consumer thousands of dollars, and become more profitable.”
Added Robert Stevens, on the topic of marketing, “You cant always be looking for that silver bullet, because there is no silver bullet. You need to use a series of marketing initiatives, not just one thing. When we ask people how they heard about Help-U-Sell, they always tell us, “We see you everywhere.”
