We found Friend Wells knowledgeable, and eager to show us many possible homes until we finally found just the right home for us.   He also saved us a couple of thousand dollars in the negotiation process!   Most of all, it was a great relief to know that he is a man of character, so we could be confident that he was doing his utmost to help us and not looking out for anyone else's interests.   I have complete confidence in his integrity. Rick & Linda T
With great pleasure I recommend Friend Wells as a real estate agent for any individual or family to sell or searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. I had an initial meeting with Friend and he made me feel very comfortable. He took diligent notes regarding the sale of my town home. He brought the stats for the location to compare prices.  He didn’t put me under any kind of pressure. He did not waste any time putting the house up on sale on MLS listing and with the signage. The very first day he had 5 contracts. He treated me like I was his only customer. He guided me every step of the way during the sale. He also helped me find a great Lawyer for the closing. He is very personable and honest.  He always stayed in touch through email, phone or texting throughout the selling process of my house.  I am very pleased to recommend Friend Wells to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Hi Friend, I just wanted to take the time to tell you thank you for all you have done during this transaction.  Given my situation of buying a home for the first time since my divorce, I was very excited but anxious and scared at the same time.  You took your time to make sure I understood every step of the process (even though I am in the business).  I could not have had such a smooth purchase without your help! Toni H.
Dear Friend, We are now settled into our three-bedroom, first-floor apartment and are "care free"  Thanks to you, our four-bedroom home sold in days and we no longer have to worry about yard work or steps to a second floor! We so appreciate your knowledge of the real estate market which not only helped in pricing the home we had to sell, but also you knew exactly how to market the home so the news spread widely.  All our interactions with you were "friendly" (a little pun there).   When you entered our home, you came well-prepared; you got straight to the point and didn't waste any of our time.  Every step of the way went smoothly. Thanks so much for your help!  We think you and Assist2Sell are a winning combination. Mark & Marilynn S.
Dear Friend, We want to thank you for your assistance in selling our home.  From the minute we met you, we knew we could trust you to get the house on the market for a fair price.  Your positive, low key attitude and practical approach made us comfortable and was a welcome change from other realtors we met.  In addition, we appreciated the Assist2Sell standard sales commission verses a percentage of the sale.  After taking pictures and advertising our home, our house sold in 5 days! You gave us good advice during negotiations.  When we needed some repairs after an inspection, you gave us a name of a contractor who was able to do the repairs at a very reasonable price.  Your knowledge about the real estate market was extremely helpful to us since we had lived in our house for over 31 years and were quite rusty about the market.  Thank you for your assistance.  Your honesty and support was appreciated to move us on to our next home. Jayne & Fred
What a bumpy ride we had. I bet you never thought that you would have to sell our house three times before we had a successful closing. It was a great relief to have someone so steady and supportive to see us through to such a happy conclusion.  I cannot thank you enough for your very friendly and professional approach. We greatly appreciate all your effort on our behalf. We cannot thank you enough! Erin & Brian M.
Friend came into in our lives at just the right time. We were looking for a one level home and Friend was so supportive in helping us find the right place with everything we wanted. Thank you for being honest, supportive, and there when we needed you. It was refreshing working with someone who was there for us. You really are a friend. Floyd and Margaret B.
Marianne was our realtor in the recent purchase of a home, advising, scouting, keeping us well-informed, answering our questions, hearing our concerns and wishes, connecting us with reputable colleagues and services, and overseeing every detail to make sure the purchase went as smoothly as possible. We would highly recommend her as Real Estate Agent and call on her again, if needed. Sandi Kerner

Marianne is with you from start to finish. She attends to every detail, gets you in touch with the right people (inspectors, utilities, etc), stays in touch with you, and promptly untangles any hitches. And does it all with a nice smile. What more would one look for in an effective agent? William E Blake,Jr.
Marianne is by far the most knowledgeable and helpful realtor I have worked with to find and purchase a home. I will definitely choose her should I buy or sell a home in the future. Viktoria Glenn
Marianne and Team Assist2Sell helped me on both ends -- selling my house and buying a new one. She was very professional, helping me with negotiations on both sides. It was a very stressful time for me so I was sometimes not quite thinking clearly but she really helped me with big and small details that I missed. She was also able to help me with gaining benefits that I may not have asked for had she not been there. She also helped me keep my cool when things got stressful with the negotiations. She even helped me by being at my house for repairs when I was at work! I would gladly recommend her and Assist2Sell to anyone thinking of buying or selling a house. nmcquilk
We were so blessed to work with Marianne and her Assist2Sell team. When she first came to our home and sat down with us, she was honest, professional, yet personable. Marianne and her team took care of every detail and the house sold quickly. If you're buying or selling a house, we would highly suggest you call Marianne and Team Assist2Sell ASAP.

I recommend Marianne Raymond with Team Assist2Sell because she helped us sell our home as a professional with knowledge in real estate in our area. We had a great experience with her as our agent. Gary Dalton
My sister and I hired Marianne Raymond at Assist-to-Sell as the listing agent for our father's townhouse, after meeting with her twice. She is an excellent listener and communicator, clearly picking up on all of our concerns. The service Marianne delivered to us was everything she said it would be - and then some. Marianne helped us set a realistic asking price, based on our property value, timing and objectives. She always followed-up on issues; made contractor recommendations which all worked out as reliable and reasonably priced; connected us with an excellent seller's attorney that was conveniently located to my work; and handled negotiations on the purchase price and terms promptly - always leaving room for our considerations while educating us on procedure and practice. The property closed 9 weeks after listing! It was a complete win-win. Assist-to-Sell is a great way to go, when you have an agent like Marianne on your listing. Margaretabrowne
Marianne with Team Assist2Sell assisted us in negotiating an unbelievable three contracts on our home. In each case she was professional and knowledgeable. With her help we overcame a series of odd situations and issues. Ultimately, with her help, our house sold and closed. Our patience was tested but together we finalized the sale. I would highly recommend Marianne and Team Assist2Sell to anyone selling their home. talltim6117
When we began to consider moving, one of our first concerns was the amount of commission that would be paid to a traditional real estate agent, so our search for money-saving alternatives resulted in discovering Assist2Sell. Being unfamiliar and uncertain, we called the office and Marianne Raymond answered the phone. She assured us that Assist2Sell provided the same professional services as other agencies, only at a discounted rate. So we hired her to sell our house. Marianne was experienced and knowledgeable. She responded promptly to our questions and requests. Marianne's professional expertise helped us to overcome many hurdles encountered throughout the process. She calmly, graciously intervened numerous times to keep our closing date on schedule when our buyer's traditional agent was negligent in her duties. It wouldn't have happened without Marianne skillfully working on our behalf. We highly recommend Marianne Raymond and Assist2Sell to anyone with real estate needs. summergators
Our experience with Marianne Raymond and Team Assist2Sell has been as both buyer and seller. In both roles she was excellent. She understands the market well, and prices sensibly. Her posts on the net are attractive and full. She maintains regular contact with all relevant parties. An illustration of her thoroughness is the way her sharp eye roves around a property with a view to what needs to be changed for the sale. She's also quite adept at reading peoples' faces and body language, as she determines their preferences. Her manner is friendly and easy, particularly in handling all the many forms and papers required in a transaction. We applaud her for the effective service that we received from her and Assist2Sell. weblake
Marianne Raymond with Team Assist2Sell was very knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process form preparing our home for listing to the closing. She brings a lot of commonsense to the process and was very attentive to every detail. We highly recommend her for your real estate needs. joeandpattyelton
Marianne is very helpful and super responsive. When a potential sale fell through, she went back and reposted the listing and had another offer in days. My neighbor was selling their house at the same time and because of Marianne's efforts and Team Assist2Sell, my home is now sold while the sign still sits in my neighbor’s yard. user1169352
We asked Marianne with Team Assist2Sell to sell our home in Chesterfield County because she sold our next door neighbor's home so quickly. Additionally, her low fee structure was another reason we decided to work with her. We were pleased with Marianne's knowledge of the statistics in our area and her ability to let us know the next steps in the selling process. She also represented us on the purchase side for our next home. We highly recommend Marianne’s services and endorse her and Team Assist2Sell for both buying and selling. user1082921
Your fee structure was what caught our eye initially, but it was the quality of your advice throughout the process that really made the difference. You helped us achieve the goals that everyone else said were not possible. Ron & Rhonda Rinker

...... We weren't sure what to expect when we first contacted Assist-2-Sell about putting our home on the market; we were just looking save some money. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that we could also get all of the services provided by other agencies, along with an agent who would make us feel like we were her only client. It didn't take long for us to realize that we were in good hands.... Jay & Michelle Merringer
Want to let you know what a pleasure it was to work with your agent. Her professional attitude and followup are second to none. She always had sound, well thought out advice and presented the information in a clear, thoughtful manner. Her attitude was always positive and she has hard working values. Many times it is hard to find the kind of character she represents in professionals today. Kim & E.J. Rossow

Assist-2-Sell was one of the best choices we made . . . . We literally had no worries, though we tried to worry, our listing agent wouldn't let us -- she had everything covered -- not to mention the money we saved! Joe & Heather Westerman
I recently bought a home and trusted William Raymond to be my agent. I have so many wonderful things to say about William and his entire Assist-2-Sell team. William demonstrates what it means to go above and beyond for your clients . . . William stayed on site with me during the five hour home inspection. As the inspector packed up to leave, William felt it was important to check the peak of the roof, which was not covered by the inspection. He scaled the roof himself to make sure there was no problem hiding up there that should prevent me from continuing the purchase. How many agents would risk their life and limb to try and find something that might STOP a deal from closing? Not only am I among the many who have save collective "millions" by using Assist-2-Sell, but I can honestly say that I have never bought anything where I have had such an advocate looking out for me at every step of the process. Thank you William and Team Assist-2-Sell. Rick Blackwell
. . . Rick, I really, really appreciate your recommendation of William Raymond. He is an excellent asset and is doing a wonderful job guiding me through the house-buying process. Between you and William, I feel like I have an all-star team helping me out! Katie B.
