Help-U- Sell® Westside Realty Shatters Spring Sales With $10.5M Home Sale

Los Angeles, CA (May 15, 2017)  – It’s always brisk business at the Help-U-Sell Westside Realty but recently things have taken a decidedly sharp turn upwards at the busy Los Angeles office, where just a few days ago franchise owner/broker Henry Ho reported the successful sale of a $10.5M home in Bel Air.

“Because of the flat-fee system we use here at Help-U-Sell, we were able to save the seller well over $350,000 over the traditional commission based model, which is truly monumental savings,” said Henry Ho, who established the franchise office in 2007.

“Detractors have implied from the beginning 40 years ago that we’re just a discount broker. We are in different times where people don’t want to throw money away on outsized commissions – it’s just unnecessary. This successful sale of this home proves that our model excels just as well in the luxury home market as it does the residential,” said Robert Stevens, Chief Operating Officer.

The custom-built home boasts a gorgeous, one-of-a kind pool, housed in a cathedral styled glass-dome. In addition to two complete bedroom suites and a primary master bedroom suite, there is a temperature controlled wine cellar and breathtaking views of Moraga Vineyards and The Getty.

Instead of the traditional percentage-based commission, Help-U-Sell Real Estate charges its sellers a set fee and a menu of services, allowing clients to participate in the selling process to save as much money as they would like. Help-U-Sell brokers are fully licensed members of the National Association of REALTORS and can offer sellers and buyers a full-service experience.

About Help-U-Sell Real Estate

Created 40 years ago, the Help-U-Sell Real Estate model was the pioneer for providing an alternative to the dated commission structure, something that had gone uncontested for years in a market overrun by a monopoly of traditional brokerage firms. Help-U-Sell Real Estate forged a revolution in the real estate industry by proactively challenging the commission structure, and has continued to perfect its full-service, set-fee model today.

Taking Branding to the Next Level

Roberta Pickens, who recently rejoined Help-U-Sell Real Estate with a franchise office on the Treasure Coast in Hobe Sound, visited the Help-U-Sell headquarters this week in Sarasota with a cool ride that was easy on the eyes.

Roberta had the idea to convert her camper into a billboard for her brand new office and brought it by for us to check out. “I wanted to weave the message of Help-U-Sell savings into the community where I do business,” Roberta explained. “It targets my specific audience and leaves a big impression.”

Our Chief Development Officer, John Powell (L) and Director of Franchise Sales, Dave Patterson (R), took a moment to join Ms. Pickens and check out the work.
