Rehava ads spark ethics complaint
By Molly Parker
One local real estate company’s ad campaign — encouraging homebuyers to “break up” with their agents — has stirred up so much controversy that the broker in charge is canceling it.
Steve deGuzman, owner of the Rehava Real Estate Store that opened last summer in North Charleston, says he has done nothing wrong. Still, deGuzman said he will halt the campaign out of “professional courtesy.”
Some billboards have already come down, and deGuzman said the advertisements posted on the stall doors of dozens of public restrooms will disappear soon. He also plans to take down the campaign’s accompanying Web site, www.breakupwithyouragent.com.
