expr = Fit[{{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}}, {1, x1, x2}, {x1, x2}];

Flatten[CoefficientList[expr, {x2, x1}]] // Most

{1.55556,0.555556,0.444444}

Most is used to drop the coefficient (0) of the (x1*x2) term

Cases[expr, _?NumericQ, Infinity]

{1.55556,0.555556,0.444444}

Or using FindFit rather than Fit

{a, b, c} /.
FindFit[{{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}},
a + b*x1 + c*x2, {a, b, c}, {x1, x2}]

{1.55556,0.555556,0.444444}

=============
Dear Friends:
I am using Fit within a function, and I want it to produce only a list of
coefficients, without the variables.
For example, if I plug into fit the following:
Fit[{{1,2,3},{4,5,6},{7,8,9}},{1,x1,x2},{x1,x2}],
Mathematica produces:
1.55556+0.555556 x1+0.444444 x2

I want to get only the following list:
{1.55556,0.555556,0.444444}

It seem awfully simple, but I haven't managed.
How can I do it?
Thanks
Francisco
