Help-U-Sell For Agents

by David Bartels on November 27, 2015

I talk with real estate agents all the time.  Sometimes, if it’s a really good agent, I ask if they’ve ever considered working with us at Help-U-Sell Conejo Valley.  The initial response is usually negative and when I probe, I usually hear the same thing:

‘Why would I work for Help-U-Sell?  You guys charge so little, I couldn’t make any money with you!”

That’s a good opening for me.  Now I can explain how they can make very good money at Help-U-Sell Conejo Valley, and how they can make even more than their making now!  You see, our business model is different.  We run our office differently than the ordinary broker down the street.  If you were to apply the realities of the ordinary real estate world to our situation, it wouldn’t make sense.  You have look at Help-U-Sell with fresh eyes.  And when you do, the light bulb goes on and it makes perfect sense, for consumers, for real estate agents and for brokers.

Here is a short video about the benefits of working with Help-U-Sell Conejo Valley to an agent:
