Earlier today I posted an item stating that Mr. Finlay had rejected an offer of $8 million from my client and subsequently sold it to his own client for $7.8. I was wrong and I deeply regret relying on my memory, rather than first double-checking my email records. I did indeed recommend an $8 million offer ($7.9, actually) to my client but in fact, he chose to bid only $7.5 million. So Chris acted entirely appropriately in selling the property for $300,000 more. And I am very, very sorry to have impugned his integrity. I like Chris – we had a rocky start together many years ago but since then we have gotten along just fine and I have found him to be a highly professional agent.
So Chris, I apologize, profoundly and humbly and ask your forgiveness.
UPDATE: Chris has graciously accepted my apology but corrects me: my client offered $7 million, not $7.5. (although his ultimate goal was $7.5). You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil must be lead.
