Is this a news story or an ad?

@ P-L, clearly it's an ad. They must not have gotten enough 6% commissions this month. People who are really charitable and caring do what they do without blowing their own horn. At least this narrows down the list of realtors that I might use when selling my home.

And shame on you Gina for allowing this post to remain. Still wondering why so few downtown businesses choose to advertise in the Weekly? Free "ads" like this that you allow to remain on the site would be one good reason.

PW should be ashamed of posting this news release verbatim; I don't think the realty firm is at fault here - it was just using a local news source to promote its effort. I'm all for giving props to local businesses that do community service projects such as this one, but this is just poor journalism on PW's part.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
