Lance worked very hard to sell our rural property. We were pleased with the service he provided and felt he went out of his way to sell our home. On several occasions he helped us save on some of the expenses of selling the home. We will look to Lance to help us buy or sell our next home.
My wife and I are very pleased with the services provided by Lance P. Raney (Assist to Sell), both in the recent sale of our home and in the purchase of our new home. Lance Raney has sold two of our houses and has helped us in the purchase of our new home. Lance Raney was very professional, and cares about his customers. We will definitely refer our friends and family to Lance Raney, and will also use him again.

After trying to sell two times before, we put our house on the market with Lance in late January. The second person to look at our house made an offer, and we closed and had a check in our hands in less than a month. Lance more than exceeded our expectations. He blanketed the internet with our house listing and helped us price our house right for the market. After we received the offer on our house, Lance was very diligent about keeping us up to date about all of the inspections, answering all of our questions and all of the other things involved in selling our house. We would have been lost without his guidance. I would recommend Lance to anyone who wants to sell their home. He is very professional, and as an added bonus, a good guy with a great personality.
Thanks again Lance!

"Lance Raney with Assist 2 Sell is fantastic! We hired Lance after several months of our house sitting on the market with little interest, and within 3 weeks of listing with Lance, we had an offer on our house. Throughout the entire process of listing, escrow and closing, Lance was in constant communication with us and really kept us aprised of what was going on - without us having to call him! We truly appreciated his time, effort and overall honesty! Should we need to sell a house again, we would not hesitate to list with Lance and Assist 2 Sell; he was a great realtor and he saved us money with a lower commision rate. What's not to appreciate about that?" Nicholas and Lori
Good luck with everything!

Hi! Lance I want to thank you again for the excellant manner in which you handled the sale of home there in Las Cruces. I appreciate that you stayed in constant contact with me after I left the state,until the closing was complete. I would highly recommend Assist 2 Sell
Thanks for helping with the townhouse sale!! All the financials are DONE as of this morning. Before that I was a wreck. I really appreciate it.Its a new world for me today with a big load off my back.I hope the new owners feel the same way. Keep in touch, there could possibly be more in the 2012 - 2014 time
frame, who knows?
Thank you so much! Below you will find my written recommendation for your service! Thank you, again, for everything!!!
I have never been more pleased or impressed with a realtor as I was with Lance Raney. He put my home out there on websites and other internet mass-media advertising sites. Lance kept me up to date on almost a weekly basis as to what was happening with the showings of my home. Lance has a keen knowledge of home sales in the Las Cruces area and I would highly recommend his service to anyone who needs to sell a home quick!
Sorry this took so long. Please use me as a reference anytime. We hope to get together for the dinner we owe you soon. I recently purchased a home listed by Lance Raney. Having purchased over ten homes in my lifetime, I was dreading the paperwork and and time involved with the purchase. Lance made this the easest and quickest sale that I have ever seen. His knowledge and experience were very professional and his choice of inspectors was great. Lance made my home purchase actually enjoyable.
Hi Lance, Hope you are out bass fishing!! We are in Maui- needed a little break! Here is what I came up with- you can edit as you see fit.
Lance landed a cash buyer for our family home in 72 hours! Really! This is one of those too good to be true stories, but it actually happened this way!! I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, but within two weeks of listing with Assist 2 Sell, I left the title company with a check in hand!! I was impressed with Lance at our first meeting, although he was not my first realtor interview. But I liked the online e-services he offered and the fact that he really knew the Las Cruces market. He kept on top of all the details making sure we had everything in order. He knew reliable people for the inspections who showed up on time and did what they were suppose to do. Lance kept the ball rolling and voila! DEAL DONE!! Now that's my kind of realtor!! Thanks Lance!

To Whom It May Concern: July 19, 2011
After being unsuccessful at selling my house in both 2008 and 2009, when it came time to try again in 2011, the third time, I decided to do something different. The same old formula of listing that property was just not working anymore. I needed a fresh start and a new direction that came in the form of Assist to Sell and Lance Raney.
From our very first meeting I knew that Lance was the guy that would finally sell my house. I was right - within a few months I had an offer and soon after, a closing date. The words “closing date” never sounded so sweet.
Lance is personable, responsible and does exactly what he says he will do. He cares about the environment by going paperless when possible, which is important to me, and he saved me close to $3,000 in closing costs in the process – very important to me. In conclusion, my experience with Assist to Sell and Lance Raney was a positive one and I would recommend them to anyone buying or selling a house in the Las Cruces area.
I recently bought my home with the help of Lance Raney and the Assist2Sell group. The experience was absolutely amazing. I found my dream home, placed a bid, and closed in less than a month. I really just want to thank Lance for all of his patience and advice during the home buying process. He is really a great down to earth realtor. I appreciated how he thoroughly explained all of the different aspects of the contracts and all the unexpected fees as I am a first time home buyer. The whole process could have been extremely stressful, but with Lance's help everything went smoothly and now I am enjoying living in my new home.
When it was time to choose a realtor to sell my house, I was skeptical of using a ‘discount’ broker. Will it take longer to sell? Several things changed my mind. During my morning walks I passed two homes for sale by Assist-2-Sell. Nice Flyers. It didn’t take long before one of the houses sold. I then met Lance who impressed me as being honest and easy to communicate with. And I couldn’t ignore the money I’d save in closing costs. The house sold several months after putting it on the market and I ended up saving a bunch of money as Lance brought in the buyer. I couldn’t have been happier. It was a real pleasure working with Lance and I am thankful to him for watching over my property during the period I was an absentee owner.
Many thanks for doing as promised! In this economy it's hard to be positive. But with my parents' lovely and well-cared-for home we felt that there was truly a match out there for the property. We were so very pleased with all the help and advice that was offered during the past couple months. We look forward to another possible transaction with you in the future! Good luck to you and thanks again......

This letter is to compliment Mr. Lance Raney on a job well done, in assisting us in selling our home. Assist to sell was referred to us by friends of ours who had heard about the company through the radio and through other friends. We made the decision to call Mr. Raney after speaking to him the first time and learning how quick he is to want to help his customers. Mr. Raney set up a date to meet almost immediately. Mr. Raney was very punctual in showing up to his appointment and was prepared to answer all of our questions we could possibly have about selling our first home. Mr. Raney treated us very respectful and was very honest with us. Mr. Raney provided us with all of the information we needed to make our decision to choose Mr. Raney and Assist to Sell. Mr. Raney did not hesitate in getting everything started once we told him we wanted to choose him as our listing agent. Mr. Raney quickly placed a for sale sign in our front yard which he filled with professionally made flyers which displayed pictures of our home. Mr. Raney did such a good job in listing OUT home that it sold in three weeks from the day Mr. Raney placed the sign in our front yard. We would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Raney to anyone who is interested in selling their home or even to anyone who just has questions about selling their home. We would definitely use Mr. Raney's services again in selling our next home. Mr. Raney showed us he is not out to scam people but rather is out to help his customers in any way he possibly can. We where very happy with our decision, in choosing Mr. Raney and Assist to Sell. Thank you,
Sincerely, Manny, Crystal & Jaidyn
Reva and I wanted to follow through after you sold our house with a thank you and a letter of recommendation to anyone that is considering listing with you and Assist 2 Sell.
After interviewing several real estate agents, when we decided to sell our house we went with Lance at Assist 2 Sell for several reasons. The main reason is that he listened to needs and concerns and then gave excellent feedback on how we could accomplish what we wanted.
After my wife and I discussed it, we went with Lance’s recommendations and couldn’t believe it. Our house had an offer in five days! This was amazing in that the market seemed to dictate that it could be several months—in fact our house sold while other home’s that had listed prior to ours in the same neighborhood were still on the market.
Like most people selling their house, we were not sure of what to expect next. However during the whole process, from the time we listed through the final closing and even after closing, Lance showed a professional yet caring attitude, never making us feel that we were just “another customer” that wanted to sell their property.
Since we had moved to another town and left the house empty, we really appreciated that Lance continually (several times per week) followed through in letting us know by phone and email exactly what was happening during the process. Even if there was nothing new we were never left questioning what was going on or what to expect next and how he was going to handle it.
We would highly recommend Lance and Assist 2 Sell to anyone who wants personal attention and professional skills in the sale of their property, as well as having a competitive and simple charge for the work they do. Thanks’ again for the work you did in getting our house sold!
Jerry & Reva
Assist 2 Sell Attention: Lance P. Raney 1041 N. Solano Las Cruces, New Mexico 88001 Dear Mr. Raney, We want to thank you for the great job you did in selling our home! We gave you an impossible task in this depressed and uncertain housing market; we had to sell our home in approximately 30 days. You put all you had into it and performed the impossible. The house sold in a fraction of the time. But you didn't stop there. When we knew that we could not be out of the house before closing, you went a step further. You came to the house with a couple of friends with your working clothes on and your sleeves rolled up and we were out with plenty of time before our appointment at the title company that afternoon. When we thought all was hopeless and felt like giving up, your encouragement and positive attitude kept us going. You were there all the way for us, and for that we are eternally grateful. We would be proud to recommend you to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
Sincerely , E.D.
`To Whom It May Concern: Please accept this letter of referral in appreciation and support of Lance Raney. My brother and I were recently in the market for a new home, and we were referred to Assist-to-Sell by a friend. As Lance took on the task of finding the right place for us, he kept communication open through phone and email. Lance introduced us to a few builders that seemed to be a good fit. We chose one, and we are now in our new home. Lance was quite versed in the closing and financing processes, and his recommendations were very helpful. In fact, we closed within 30 days of selecting the home with no problems or issues. We appreciate the work that Lance has done, and fully recommend him as a realtor.
Sincerely, Chris M.
To Whom It May Concern: This letter is a referral in support of Lance Raney who worked as a real estate agent for our family. We listed 2 separate properties with him and found that he is very easy to work with and very effective. He was quick to get our properties listed and get the flyers and sign up with no delay. He was efficient and always in contact on a regular basis. He had our properties under contract within a month and kept us informed along the way throughout the entire escrow process. It was a pleasure doing business with him and we intend to do it again, whenever the opportunity arises. .
Sincerely, Sue Ellen M
Kyle and Amy B. Las Cruces, NM To whom it may concern: Buying a house for the first time can be difficult. Luckily, Lance Raney was there to ease our worries. Not only was Lance helpful but he also made our buying experience a fun and memorable one. Lance was personable, professional and always there to answer any questions that we had, no matter how ridiculous the question seemed. Throughout every step of the way Lance has proved himself to be a trust-worthy, dependable agent and we would certainly recommend him over any other. Thanks again for all of your hard work!
Warmly, Kyle, Amy and Dylan B.
Judson K. Las Cruces, NM Letter Regarding Real Estate Service from Lance Raney of Assist-2-Sell To Whom It May Concern: My wife and I were very pleased with the services we received from Lance, namely, because he did what he said and our house was sold in three weeks. And this was in a difficult market for sellers, as Las Cruces is really a buyer’s market due to so many homes being on the market. We chose Assist-2-Sell to save some money and it worked for us. What impressed me most about Lance was his willingness to communicate with us on a daily basis. He was always in touch with me and always returned my calls right away. He was always easily accessible. Right from the start he worked hard to get our home listed and on the MLS website. He was always willing to help out in showing the home and in running paperwork to me or to the buyer. If he did not know the answer he’d always get it within the hour. Lance seems to enjoy his work of helping others sell their homes. He made recommendations and at the same time listened to our input, like with the sale price. He was always up front about what the next step ought to be and how he thought things would proceed. He was always great with follow-up. I heartily recommend Assist-2-Sell and Lance in particular if you want to sell your home and save some money from the usual commissions. I was very happy Lance met with me first and would utilize his services again in the future.
Sincerely, Judson K.
Memo To: Lance Raney, Assist to Sell From: Daniel B. G. CC: Potential Buyers and Sellers Re: Property located at Highridge, Las Cruces NM 88012 I heard of Assist to Sell from a friend and more importantly of heard of Lance Raney whom is an Agent with this company. I meet with him at his office and discussed the property in which we would like to sell in Las Cruces. He explained to us the process and how he would pursue selling our home. We have worked with many realtors on various projects previously and have heard many plans before. The thing that we were excited about was to get the full service of an Agent but for such a reduced fee as what separates the Assist to Sell Firm from the others. We knew that the market was tough but looked forward to see Lance and what he could provide to get the house sold. Lance right away took pictures and had the sign up that day as well as got the house listed on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). The Las Cruces Market had very high inventory amounts and rates were higher than they had been in last couple of years. Lance sent out emails to other Agents and started building the interest in the house. As agents brought their clients through the house, and received the feedback from their customers. The greatest item was provided that we have not gotten from any other Real Estate Firm and that was a feedback web page that told us what the people thought about the house, pricing and what level of interest they had. This is invaluable when trying to sell a house in a tough market. I loved seeing what people thought and I believe having this information allowed us to make decisions that ultimately allowed us to sell the house so quickly when others stayed on the market. There are so many reasons that make Assist To Sell and more importantly Lance Raney a dynamite combination and really the only winning solution to selling your home in the Las Cruces Market. We know that this is the only group that we will trust in buying and selling our homes in Las Cruces having experienced the top quality work and having someone who really works hard to make your experience a successful one.

To whom it may concern, I used Lance’s services to sell a rental home that I owned in New Mexico. Being an investor from another state, it was important to me to use an agent who would be willing and able to go above and beyond what an agent normally does – since I was unable to physically be in New Mexico. Lance did just that. His service was above and beyond not only what an agent typically does; it was above and beyond what I even expected. There were a number of items that he assisted me with that saved me time and headache. There were some repairs that needed to be completed as a result of the home inspection, and Lance went beyond the call of duty not only to arrange those repairs, but also to oversee the work until completion. He also kept me in the loop every step of the way. Lance is an absolute model of professionalism and service! I could not be happier with this experience.
Sincerely, Brian H.
