Sold a home in 2014.

I chose Help-U-Sell...as an inexpensive way to sell my Condo. However....the high level of service provided by Help-U-Sell Broker Mercedes Varela exceeded my expectations. From the initial process of sells strategy, listing, attention to detail during the marketing process....to the offer and closing....Mercedes had the solutions that led to a good price and quick sell. She is so adept at communicating and keeping you informed. For those who want sell your property....without excessive broker fees....while receiving great broker service.....please contact Mercedes Varela. She will get the Job Done !!!!!!  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Sherman Oaks, Sherman Oaks, CA.

My short sale is closing this week because of the diligence and smooth negotiation by Mercedes. She was proactive and patient. When I thought it was time to give up after close to a year of negotiations with a very tough bank, she was my rock. She pushed on and did not give up. Thanks to you Mercedes, I can go on to persue my dreams. I recommend you to anyone!  More Less

11/03/2011 - REKimW
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Reseda, Reseda, CA.

Mercedes helped me sell an investment house that was, unfortunately, over remodeled for the area. It was a touch sell, and I ultimately lost money, which was not her fault. We knew going in it would be a hard sell to come out even. I didn't give her the highest score for responsiveness as sometimes she didn't get back to me as soon as I would like. I would have liked to see her push the buying agent to take a cut in commission when the house didn't appraise high enough to sell at the original offer, which forced me to sell at a significant loss to keep the deal alive.

She was professional and understood the market and all it's complexities better than the original agent I used. Her firm's marketing was stellar, though I'm not sure how much it ultimately helped. With HelpUSell the owner does their own open houses so that was extra time required of me and it didn't save me any money. I know they promoted the open houses via the MLS and other outlets, which my other agent was not doing.

I would recommend her again for her expertise in the process and especially all the paperwork, in addition to her knowledge of the area and the current market. One has to be willing to invest time into conducting their own open houses, which does result in a savings during closing. (Help USell has a flat fee rather than commission.
