Leaving The Country If Trump Wins? Elena Dinaburg Says She’ll Sell Your House For You!

Share News:


As if the Lakewood, Dallas Facebook page wasn’t entertainment enough, enterprising Realtor Elena Dinaburg added some snarky fuel to the flames with an ad targeting folks who have promised to leave the country if Donald Trump makes it to the White House.

So far, Dinaburg says feedback on her flyer has been both positive and negative. “I would say 98 percent positive,” she said. “With all that is going on in the media, and Trump making headlines, I thought this would be a perfect marketing plan to get people to talk and associate me as their Realtor of choice if they decide to sell their house.”

While Dinaburg said that the ad was not designed to be political in any way, there have already been some pretty heated political comments on her post inside the Lakewood Facebook group.

“You’re the one making our prices skyrocket!” said Brenda Arnold, who went on to say that Texas has always been a “red state,” and that people moving here from out of state are driving up taxes. She even went so far to call Dinaburg a “smart ass.”

That’s pretty tame considering what happened to a West Texas Realtor who posted a similar ad on Facebook.

What do you think of this ad? Is it clever marketing, or is it potentially alienating would-be clients?

    Being as Candy is hot on staging, let’s review. Leaving out the political taunt, we have a photograph of a befreckled redhead in torn jeans, flip-flop printed wife-beater, posed in backyard and snapped with an iPhone camera. I suppose that appeals to some looking to complete a transaction surrounding their largest asset.

      I don’t think that by talking about someone looks is relevant in this situation. But to each is own. This is a great marketing tactic, that’s all.

        Not looks or attractiveness, but the way a real estate agent puts themselves together certainly matters.

    man leave the gal alone, it’s a funny/cute timely ad (also fyi, there’s lots of people using this and if it makes anyone feel any better, there’s ones using the same concept except saying “if Hillary win…” Lighten up –
