Introduction

In 1987, Mary LaMeres-Pomin and Lyle Martin left the "traditional" world of real estate in search of a better way for consumers to sell their homes. They developed a model that provides home sellers with all of the services they need from a real estate company, but for a low, flat fee. The Assist-2-Sell® discount cost model also appeals to home buyers, who recognize the benefit of the large selection of competitively-priced homes offered through Assist-2-Sell’s exclusive home listings database.

The response to this consumer-friendly model was immediate and significant. Since opening the first office in Reno, Nev., Assist-2-Sell has grown to hundreds of offices in the U.S. and Canada. Over the years, Assist-2-Sell has been recognized by numerous publications as one of the fastest growing and most successful real estate franchises, a testament to the efficacy of the low fee real estate service model.[1]

Assist-2-Sell’s popular "low fee" concept attracts a high volume of business. While the low fee commission results in significant discounts for the home sellers, continuing to deliver full-service is the key to the company’s success. Consumers want and need the full services of a professional REALTOR®; they just don’t want to pay high commissions. With Assist-2-Sell’s full real estate services and discounted commission rate, those needs are fulfilled.

Assist-2-Sell has saved home sellers over $900 million in real estate commissions, and is the leading discount cost real estate company in North America. [2]
