About Help-U-Sell Real Estate



Help-U-Sell Real Estate is America’s premier provider of professional licensed real estate services, empowering consumers with access to information and choice, while offering a set-fee alternative to paying the traditional broker commission.   Help-U-Sell is the largest fee-for-service real estate franchise with nearly 200 offices in 35 states and 12 offices in South Africa.  As a result of the company’s strong leadership and forward-thinking standards of saving the consumer money.



Created 36 years ago, the Help-U-Sell model was the pioneer for providing an alternative to the dated 6% commission structure, something that had virtually gone uncontested for years in a market overrun by a monopoly of traditional brokerage firms. What distinguishes Help-U-Sell from the competition is that the company never insists on fees based on a percentage of the sales price, allowing consumers to save thousands of dollars compared to what they would have spent on a traditional broker’s fee.  Help-U-Sell forged a revolution in the real estate industry by proactively challenging the 6% commission structure.



Help-U-Sell is a full-service set-fee organization and the company’s licensed professionals manage the entire home sale process from start to finish, including handling all negotiations, providing referrals, showing the seller’s home, and providing expert advice and representation. Help-U-Sell’s model breaks down the services that a traditional broker provides, such as advertising costs, staging a house for sale and holding open houses, in turn allowing consumers to save an average 3-4% compared to what they would have spent on the traditional 6% broker fee.  With no extraneous fees or inflated commissions, consumers are given full transparency knowing from the initial stages of the transaction what they will be left with after the sale. Being the first company to recognize the consumer’s desire to save more money, as well as their greater participation in the buying and selling process, Help-U-Sell’s model, a modern alternative in the cluttered residential real estate market, has essentially revitalized the future of the industry. The strength of the Help-U-Sell’s leadership has allowed the company to expand at an explosive rate, as most of Help-U-Sell’s senior management team have held top positions at major traditional real estate companies and have broad real estate backgrounds.  Help-U-Sell brokers and agents are professionals, who are members of the National Association of Realtors and committed to following the organization’s time tested Code of Ethics. Together, Help-U-Sell’s agents, brokers and franchise owners share a unified brand vision: valuing innovation, teamwork and integrity.

0Broker Focus: Patrick Wood by HELPUSELL pats pr pics 003 300x225 Broker Focus: Patrick Wood Patrick Wood Anyone who has driven through Chino Hills, Calif., probably recognizes Patrick Wood’s name. He’s known for his ubiquitous signage. “The technique that brought me huge success in my core market was to start branding my name with the Help-U-Sell Office,” says Wood, who has owned Help-U-Sell Prestige Properties since 2003. All of his staff members have magnets on their cars that have his name and the Help-U-Sell Real Estate name, and his main work vehicle has a wrap that stands out. “The real estate signs and open house signs [also] have resulted in huge recognition, and the community has responded amazingly well,” he adds. “I constantly hear how people see my signs everywhere.” Of course, there is more to his success than signage. Wood, whose office has closed 54 sides so far this year, emphasizes the importance of offering full service and commission savings in attracting clients. “I found this to be necessary as other agents were trying to compete with my office by suggesting the clients would have to do all the work,” he says. “The full service leaves the client satisfied, which results in referrals, so it has been beneficial.” For new Help-U-Sell Brokers, he recommends continuing the full-service concept through to the office setup. “[In our office] a team concept has been put in place, and it provides clients with access to licensed assistants seven days a week,” he says. “Service is big, constant contact is big, working together is huge. This is a crazy, intense field and having the support of a team makes it much easier and productive.”
