A Houston real estate broker who allegedly plagiarized content from a number of websites is the subject of a withering blog post by the Houston Press, which notes that much of the stolen content doesn’t reflect well on its supposed author.

Client testimonial cribbed from a real estate website in Oregon, for example, means that the Texas-based broker has “a bunch of people talking about how much they dig their homes in Eugene, because you’re too dumb-slash-lazy to find-slash-replace.”

The broker also lifted a 3-year-old Houston Press blog piece about the top 10 restaurants in Houston Heights — apparently not realizing that half of the restaurants had since gone out of business.

After “repeated attempts” to get the broker to “stop lifting our stories wholesale,” the Houston Press sent him a cease-and-desist letter. Source: houstonpress.com.
