In the January 22nd edition of the Riverdale Press, N. Clark Judd reports that Sopher Realty (one of the big names in Riverdale real estate) was giving up on advertising their residential properties in order to focus on their more profitable commercial real estate dealings. The article states that Marilyn Sopher "acknowledges that the decision to cut advertising could eventually end the residential side of her business..."
However, in this week's January 29th edition, a correction letter from Vivian J. Oleen (a broker from Sopher's residential office) states that their "residential division is very definitely in business; we have deals in progress; we are functioning as always."
Seems like there was a major miscommunication somewhere along the line here. Just wanted to share this interesting little back and forth for real estate observers in the BoogieDown... Although I'm quite sure that we're the only dorks who found this little bit of intrigue to be of any interest.
