Help-U-Sell® Gold Country to Bring Savings to Amador County, CA

Pinegrove, CA (July 13, 2017) – Mr. Ken Hazelet is the latest California-based real estate Broker to join the Help-U-Sell franchise family, with a new office opening in Pinegrove this month.

Before getting his real estate license in 1996, Ken Hazelet’s specialty was making houses look attractive on the outside with his own landscaping business. “These days, I use my eye for attractive landscaping by giving my real estate clients tips on creating better curbside appeal. Folks appreciate it when you go the extra mile,” Mr. Hazelet said.

When asked why he decided to start a franchise with Help-U-Sell, Ken said “Having spent years in real estate, with previous experience a different real estate franchise, I came to an important conclusion: Change is overdue in this industry and I don’t see the traditional model working much longer. I researched the different models out there and found Help-U-Sell. The set-fee model made sense and it was closer to the cost of doing business.”

Robert Stevens, Chief Operating Officer at Help-U-Sell headquarters in Sarasota, FL, offered: “Home sellers like saving money. Our offering is backed by 41 years of proof that our model works for the seller and the broker. We’re pleased to have another office in open in California this year and glad that Ken has decided to be a part of the growth we’re experiencing.”

As Ken gets started, he will be assisted by his wife, Teresa, who will take on office manager duties. “To be successful,” Ken added, “You have to know everyone’s job and constantly be on top of all the details. But ultimately, our mission is providing people with great service and saving them money, which is the foundation of our business plan.”

Instead of the traditional percentage-based commission, Help-U-Sell Real Estate charges its sellers a set fee and a menu of services, allowing clients to participate in the selling process to save as much money as they would like. Help-U-Sell brokers are fully licensed members of the National Association of REALTORS and can offer sellers and buyers a full-service experience.
