Climb the Ladder 2nd Quarter 2018





Having been number one in total sides for the last three months, it only makes sense that Mario Ferrante (below) of Help-U-Sell Metropolitan in Woodhaven, Michigan would come out on top for the second quarter of the year. Island favorite, Richard Cricchio and Help-U-Sell Honolulu Properties  has also been creating consistent volume for April, May and June. The same goes for Jack Bailey at Help-U-Sell Greensboro. What’s great to see is the Zelena team at Help-U-Sell Direct Savings Real Estate and Karen Detwiler at Help-U-Sell Detwiler nabbing the fourth and fifth spots because both owners will be featured in Broker/Owner profiles really soon!

You have to get up and make it happen.”

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.
