Real Estate -To Be Or Not To Be Disrupted?

What is transforming the movie, taxi, music, retails, and hotel business? The are many factors and market forces at play. 

Some believe late fees and rental policies killed blockbuster and led to the rise of Netflix. Dirty cabs and high fares made Uber a household name.  Poor service and experice created the beast know as Amazon. Limited availability and high prices opened the door for AirBnB.  Being stuck buying a full-length album just to get the one or two songs we like made us change our tune for Apple.

While all these issues played a role in the change and disruption,  I would argue there is a more important and powerful link that all of these companies share that make them great. 

It can be summed up in one word.   CONVENIENCE  People gravitate to convenience.  People will pay for convenience. People will tell their friends about convenience.   Convenience is the cornerstone of customer service and experience. 

Now let's turn the conversation to real estate. Being in the real estate business, I have access to listing data from a variety of sources. What website/app is my go-to for real estate listings?  Zillow. Zillow may not be perfect but it is very convenient. House details, surrounding listings, recent solds, price and rent zestimates, and you can even check the sales history. All this in 20-30 seconds or less. Ok, so there have been a variety of companies that have made the home search faster, easier, and more accessible.  What about the transaction?  Selling or Buying or a home is the most over-complicated and inconvenient experience. 

We can argue all day about the reasons for the rise of these companies and business models. They all have one thing in common. They are consumer centric business driven to make the consumer experience better, faster, and more affordable.

Is your real estate business consumer centric?

Assist2Sell Franchise Sees "Craziness" In The Market

A2S Home Sellers.jpg

Fleishman and Remenowsky, who married last year, threw away any offers that did not meet or exceed their asking price, said Tim Tepes, their real estate agent and co-owner of Lehigh Valley-based Assist 2 Sell Realty. Further, Tepes said, the eight remaining bidders qualified for conventional loans — requiring higher credit-score criteria than a standard FHA loan.

After a bidding day that began for Tepes at 5:30 a.m. and ended at 12:30 a.m., they landed on an offer that included no tests or inspections.

“It’s not the norm, but I’m seeing more of it,” Tepes said.

One of the properties Mahon is negotiating has two identical offers in terms of price and financing terms, but one is waiving inspections. And that’s the one the seller is leaning toward, he said.

In the end, such terms are what made the deal for the Rentzes. They removed contingencies — written provisions that must be satisfied before a contract is binding and can cover areas such as home inspections, appraisal values and selling one’s home — and offered a flexible closing date.

“We knew the terms would win the day for us,” Darryl Rentz said.

A Compelling Formula for Success

                      "To be successful in today’s real estate world,                         it helps to have a unique advantage"

When it comes to companies offering a discount model, there is plenty of competition. Brokers and agents have long understood that sellers want to pay lower commission rates. But they also want full service, notes Ryan Elliott, vice president of Assist2Sell, and that’s his company’s premier distinction. Founded in Reno, Nev., in 1987 by a pair of independent REALTORS® who saw a shift in the industry, Assist2Sell was created to marry the two concepts—low commission and full service—in an advantageous way... as a full-service discount business model that exceeds consumer expectations while offering unlimited opportunity to a growing cadre of agents and franchise owners. “To be successful in today’s real estate world, it helps to have a unique advantage,” says Elliott. “There has never been a better time for a business model like Assist2Sell.” In this exclusive interview, Elliott shares the company’s unique vision and the strategies that help their franchisees become front-line competitors.

Barbara Pronin: Tell us a little more about the founding strategy of the company, and how the concept took off.
Ryan Elliott: Actually, the original motivation the founders Mary LaMeres-Pomin and Lyle Martin had was based on their frustration in spending 80 percent of their time looking for their next deal. They were successful agents with a strong base of repeat and referral customers but struggled with adding new business. Theirs was a small, traditional office—just the two of them and a support person. When they did get a chance to pitch a new seller for a listing, they would sometimes lose the listing based on their small office size. Sellers perceived that an office with a lot of agents meant those agents would all be trying to sell their homes. We all know that’s not true, and that the MLS levels the playing eld, but convincing sellers was a challenge. When they decided to try to attract more business by lowering their fees, and took the bold step to advertise this, all of a sudden, the sellers didn’t care about the number of agents in their offce. The concept was pretty simple, and it hasn’t changed: If you charge home sellers a very competi- tive fee, provide the same services your competition offers, and deliver results, you can increase volume more than enough to make up for the lower fees. That’s what Mary and Lyle started with and it’s what has helped us grow into a familiar brand with hundreds of offices all over North America.

New Assist-2-Sell Office... Making it easier for homeowners

Julie Quesnel and Tracy Wheeler have been working as realtors for nearly a decade. Despite the numerous clients they've served over the years, many have become like friends to them.

"It changes a person's life, whether you're buying or selling," Quesnel said. "You can't imagine how much of an emotional and overwhelming process that can be.

"We go through all the emotions with the clients," she said.

The pair is hoping their new discount, full-service real estate brokerage, Assist-2-Sell Cornwall Realty, which opened at 714 Pitt St. on Monday, will make that experience a little bit easier for residents of Cornwall and SDG.

The new office is part of the Assist-2-Sell franchise that offers brokerage services at a flat fee commission, instead of commission at a percentage of the sale price of a home, according to the company's website.

Quesnel said she believes all home buyers want to save money when purchasing a house, including those in the Cornwall and SDG area.

"It was an opportunity to purchase the franchise (office) and be able to provide to homeowners a full service with great savings," she said -- adding that's money people can spend on things like furniture, or another property in the future.

The office's focus is mostly on helping homeowners through a home listing package, Quesnel said, but she and Wheeler do service home buyers as well.

"We do everything that a traditional real estate brokerage would do," she said. "It's just the savings to the homeowners -- that's how it would differ."

The two women began their business venture in May, after working for different companies for several years.

Quesnel said it was high time for them to open their own brokerage office.

So they hopped on a plane to Reno, Nev., and spent a week learning more about Assist-2-Sell from the founders of the franchise, Quesnel said.

The company also has offices in Ontario, British Columbia, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

"It was an intense week, but it was amazing," Quesnel said "We knew we did the right thing."

Buying or selling a home can be a huge life decision, but having someone there to guide you can make things easier, she said.

"It's all about helping others -- that's what it comes down to," she said. "It's not the volume that you do, it's how you change lives."

Each day is different, which is what makes the work exciting for Quesnel and Wheeler. They could be viewing properties, out doing listings or doing inspections.

The amount of time Quesnel and Wheeler spend with each client differs from case-to-case as well. But it's not a race to the finish line.

"It's a matter of making sure the house is the right fit," Quesnel said, adding that's one of her favourite parts about working with first-time home buyers.

"Every experience is unique," she said. "It's a wonderful process."
