New Anti Spam Law

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

There is new legislation coming into effect on Tuesday July 1 in Canada that prevents spamming (sending email correspondence to people in order to gain business and without their express or implied consent).

This law will be a way to finally have my own email folder cleaned of all of the marketing that is currently being sent in most cases simply because I bought a product and had to give my email address to them to check out. What a relief, and since I’m happy about it I can only assume others are too.

We’ve always conducted ourselves in business in a ‘do unto others’ manner and in this case that means email messages as well. We haven’t sent out mass emails for some time, believing that if you want information from us, you’ll let us know. Of course there is information that we know will be interesting to some of you, and instead of sending it to a group en masse, we have it available in our Client Resource Section of our website, or post it to Social Media.

We’ll continue this practice and hope that you find some of what we have to share with you of interest, feel free to ask us for information at any time, if we don’t have a resource prepared we’ll develop it just for you!

By the way, there is one email that we send out to all of our clients (people with whom we have bought or sold a property) and that’s our invitation to our Annual Client Appreciation event and is our way of saying thank you to everyone. First we mail out the formal invitation and then follow up by email and this happens every spring. This year’s event was great fun, and next year we anticipate the same, so keep your eyes open for a spring message.

We hope that you agree with our ‘do unto others’ approach to our business, as we all look forward to the near future of No Spam!!
