National franchise market research firm Franchise Business Review has named Help-U-Sell® Real Estate on its list of top franchises for 2012.
The annual FBR 50 Awards rank franchise companies by their level of franchisee satisfaction. The awards recognize the top franchise companies with the highest levels of overall franchisee satisfaction, as well as Best in Category and Honorable Mention awards in 16 industry categories.
Franchise Business Review surveyed current Help-U-Sell Real Estate franchisees to gauge their experiences and satisfaction with the company. Topics included training and support, core values and financial opportunity. Help-U-Sell Real Estate finished 53rd overall in the mid-size systems group and in the top eight in the real estate category. More than 22,000 franchisees representing more than 300 franchise brands participated this year.
“I am so excited that Help-U-Sell made the list, but I have to say I’m not surprised, really. We’ve worked very hard to build an inclusive culture where franchisor, franchisee and agent all have the same bull’s-eye: to sell more real estate and have more satisfied customers,” said James Dingman, Help-U-Sell Real Estate’s chief development officer. “I’ve been in real estate franchising for 30 years, and the franchisor/franchisee relationship can be almost adversarial. That kind of us versus them climate does not exist at Help-U-Sell.”
Help-U-Sell Real Estate has 100 offices operating in 25 states and the District of Columbia.
About Help-U-Sell Real Estate
Created 36 years ago, the Help-U-Sell Real Estate model (helpusell.com) was the pioneer for providing an alternative to the dated commission structure, something that had gone uncontested for years in a market overrun by a monopoly of traditional brokerage firms. Help-U-Sell Real Estate forged a revolution in the real estate industry by proactively challenging the commission structure, and has continued to perfect its full-service set-fee model today.
