Green Business Web Review Winner Shops Organically on Granville Island

By uncleweed on January 23, 2008 - 1:59pm

VANCOUVER - January 23, 2008 - A Granville Island shop specializing in organic fabric fashions was a bit surprised when a photographer, a contest winner and a guy with a cheque for $500 came into her store, Organix. While hardly a lotto windfall, all that was missing from the scene was the giant cheque and the confetti!

Alexa, Pat and Dave at Organix

The contest, promoted by newly-launched BC Green Directory, encouraged site members to review green-minded businesses and organizations listed in the comprehensive website. Each quality review resulted in an entry to win the loot to spend at any one listed shop, service or charity.

As the green directory review contest winner, Vancouver web designer Alexa Booth faced a compelling choice of 1600 different green minded vendors at which to spend her prize - and she should know as she entered over 30 in-depth reviews.

when a dream becomes real

By jlyon on August 10, 2007 - 1:11pm

My Real Place is a newly launched community website focused on the Real Estate market.

We created My Real Place to provide consumers with access to real estate information and to have a degree of control in the realty process.

I was frustrated with what was out there to help me buy my own place and thought we could do better. I wanted to bring all aspects of the real estate market together - listings, realtors, mortgage brokers, contractors etc and do it in a novel, intuitive and easy to use way. To be able to ask questions on my own terms and in my own time, to find out easily who's selling what and where.

It's early days yet but we seem to be getting a lot of interest from people who seem to like it. We think it's awesome but I guess we would say that.

We currently have over 15,000 property listings, over 4,000 realtors and other realty professionals. We're getting over 2,000 people a day on the site so I guess we must be doing something right. We hope to roll out across Canada in the next few months so it's exciting times.

If you get chance, check it out and let us know what you think. Stop by and say hi.
