and this isn’t the first time…

but this time it wasn’t so… glamorous…
You see, the vancouver Sun writer, Kim Bolan, thought I was the listing agent for a property in Burnaby which was connected to a known criminal.  When Kim searched the property and area on the internet, she found us at the top of the results – kudos for our marketing efforts – and to doing a better job than the listing agent (which is NOT me!).
So she automatically assumed that I was the listing agent for the said property (she assumed this after calling me once – and subsequently not reaching me during Father’s day Sunday – Sorry I didnt return your call: I must have been writing a card to my old man & then wining and dining him because he rocks).
LET ME BE CLEAR ABOUT THIS IN CASE YOU READ THE ARTICLE IN THE SUN TODAY:
I AM NOT THE LISTING AGENT FOR THIS PROPERTY…
So, after receiving a few calls and emails from past & potential clients, I decided to do something about it – so I went to find the culprit who ran my name in the front page of the paper in gross mistake…
After 20 emails and one ‘friendly’ phone call – I received the following email from the head editor at the vancouver Sun: “Hi Richard,
I spoke to our Editor in Chief Patricia Graham and she agreed to the following. It’s a bit unorthodox for us to run this in the body of the story, but since that was what you really wanted, she decided to relax our policy this once.
We will run the following paragraphs in the body of Kim’s follow-up story. “The listing agent is identified as Sutton’s Jenna Lowe and not Richard Morrison, as the Sun reported Monday. Morrison simply reposted the ad for the palatial Burnaby view property on his online site.”
We will not be running a set straight on A2, as it would merely duplicate what is already being reported.
I trust that will satisfy,
Sincerely, Adrienne Tanner.”

 

Please read tomorrow’s paper (Tuesday June 21st, 2011) and it will be all clarified – and once again we will be on the front page of the vancouver Sun – albeit for all the wrong reasons. BUT WE HAVE ALSO BEEN ON 3 FRONT PAGE ARTICLES SO FAR THIS YEAR – AND FOR ALL THE RIGHT REASONS!

…We just never boasted – but since the vancouver Sun made us headline news – for the wrong reasons, why not let you know about our other headline news – for the right reasons? (are you reading this Sellers?).
