What We’re Thankful for in 2014

Movement Mortgage and Help-U-Sell Real Estate
Movement Mortgage representatives mingle with franchisees at a 2014 Success Summit reception.

It’s becoming an annual tradition to recount what has made us grateful in the past 12 months during Thanksgiving week. Many of the items on our list this year remain the same as last year, and we couldn’t be happier that we can repeat ourselves. It was another stellar year for Help-U-Sell Real Estate, and our fabulous franchisees had a great deal to do with our continued success, as always.

What we’re thankful for in 2014:

    * Our enthusiastic new franchisees! We are so glad they have joined the Help-U-Sell Real Estate family, and we look forward to watching them develop their businesses into dominant brokerages.
    * Our veteran franchisees! They are so willing to share their expertise with their fellow family members and have persevered through the tough times to see incredible growth network-wide this past year. We see more on the horizon for 2015.
    * The great participation at the Success Summit again and, more importantly, the genuine fellowship and valuable learning that happened at this and at every Summit.
    * Our new partnership with Movement Mortgage. Their values align so well with ours, and their unique offerings will provide another way for us to help our clients with their real estate transactions.
    * Winning Franchise Business Review’s Franchisee Satisfaction Award for the fourth year in a row. We are humbled by and appreciative of our franchisees’ votes of confidence.

Tell us what has inspired you to give thanks this year.

We’re in the middle of the fourth annual Help-U-Sell Success Summit in Las Vegas.

So far, we’ve learned about public relations, time management, Google AdWords, effective use of videos in real estate marketing, social media, and our proprietary technology tools.

Help-U-Sell Success Summit 2014

Help-U-Sell Success Summit
A panel of successful franchisees offered advice during last year's Help-U-Sell Success Summit.

We had such a great turnout for the Success Summit last October in Las Vegas that we’re returning there this year.

Stay tuned for the agenda later this spring or early in the summer. We are planning on more roundtable discussions and networking opportunities, based on feedback we received after last year’s Summit. Attendees can expect to see new technology and new marketing materials and to leave with new knowledge, new friends and new skills.

The dates of the Summit are Oct. 14-16. Like last year, the event will begin midday on Tuesday and end midday Thursday so that attendees can come in on the first day and leave on the last day. There will be a welcome reception on Tuesday evening, as well as free time for everyone to mingle or explore the Strip on their own.

We have arranged for discounted rooms at our location for the Summit, Planet Hollywood. Rates will be $109 per night (not including a daily $20 resort fee, which includes WiFi and fitness center access). Call the hotel at 800-634-6661 and say you’re with Help-U-Sell to get this rate. The deadline for booking your rooms is September 12. There are some rooms available in our block starting Oct. 13, if you are arriving the day before the Summit begins.

In the meantime, please register at seminars.helpusell.com so that we know you’ll be joining us.

We want to see you in Vegas! If you’re not a Help-U-Sell franchisee yet, don’t worry. It’s not too late to become one. Last year, we had new franchisees sign the paperwork just days before attending. Afterward, one of them said, “We left so excited, so pumped up and ready to go. Anyone new should always go to the Summit.”
