Jacksonville, FL, March 20, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- John and Marsha Neighbors, and daughter Lori, know a good thing when they see it. After owning and operating a successful Assist-2-Sell office in the Fruit Cove area for two years, the Neighbors decided to relocate their office to be closer to Nocatee and Southside, and still be close enough to service the Mandarin and Fruit Cove areas.
Prior to opening their first Assist-2-Sell office in 2004, the Neighbors spent nine years working for “traditional” real estate brokerages. Over the last three years, the Neighbors have grown to believe that Assist-2-Sell is the best option for home sellers.
So what is it about Assist-2-Sell that continues to inspire the Neighbors?
“John, Lori and I worked for three ‘traditionally-priced’ real estate companies prior to joining Assist-2-Sell but grew tired of justifying our 6-7 percent commission,” says Marsha. “Assist-2-Sell allows us to offer the same professional services we have always offered but for a lot less money. The only difference between now and then is the savings.”
Assist-2-Sell is a full-service discount real estate company that started in 1987 in Reno, Nev. Today, there are more than 550 franchise offices throughout the United States and Canada. Assist-2-Sell’s “Full Service with $avings!” program has been refined over the last 20 years and sets it apart from other real estate companies.
As a full-service real estate brokerage, Assist-2-Sell’s experienced brokers and agents handle everything throughout the entire process of selling a home. That includes pricing the home; advertising and marketing online; showing the home to prospective buyers; working with other local brokers and agents; and managing all of the paperwork and the closing.
Lori explains, “The only difference between Assist-2-Sell and ‘traditional’ real estate companies is our compensation structure. We charge a low, flat fee instead of a commission that is a percentage of a home’s sale price. That will add up to significant savings!”
There are no upfront or hidden charges. Assist-2-Sell isn’t paid until the home is sold; after closing. The Neighbors charge $2,995 for homes up to $200,000, with moderate increases for homes over $200,000.*
Assist-2-Sell isn’t a new concept for many in the Jacksonville area but there are some major misperceptions the Neighbors hope to quickly clear up.
“A lot of people think Assist-2-Sell discounts its fees by cutting out services. There are some ‘discounters’ that force homeowners to do most of the work but we aren’t one of them,” assures John. “We’re really proud of the fact that we enable homeowners to hold onto more of their home’s equity without forcing them to sacrifice any of the service and support they need.”
Assist-2-Sell also provides home buyers with a full range of services, including access to the company’s exclusive listings databases.
“It’s a great time to buy a home, particularly in the Jacksonville market. Business is booming throughout Northeast Florida, interest rates are at an all time low, and would-be homeowners are sure to benefit from the new economic stimulus package,” says Lori. “Fortunately, the crisis in the subprime mortgage market hasn’t affected Jacksonville the way it has in other parts of the country…even the state, so our real estate market continues to be strong.”
Lori also serves on a committee for the local Board of REALTORS, along with other real estate brokers. The committee’s assigned task is to develop plans to promote the quality and uniqueness of the Jacksonville real estate market compared to most other markets.
