Agent furious after OnTheMarket passes customer’s email address to mortgage broker

first_imgAn OnTheMarket agent has told The Negotiator that the portal has passed on a client’s email address given to OTM for its Property Alerts service to a mortgage broker, which has now prospected for business in competition with the agent’s in-house financial services operation.Steve Pymm of three branch Norwich estate agency Pymm & Co says in April 2019 one of his branch managers was canvassed by the portal to sign up customers to its Property Alerts service and incentivised with shopping vouchers of either £1 or £4 per lead to do so.The office manager, Andrew Fox, then decided to add his own personal email as one of the addresses supplied to see what OnTheMarket did with the information.Earlier this month Pymm says the branch manager received an email from mortgage broker John Charcol touting for business and referencing OnTheMarket.“The portal clearly thought Andrew was an applicant on our database,” says Pymm (left).The letter, which offered a mortgage review to Fox, said: “Here at John Charcol Mortgage Brokers, we pride ourselves on being the original independent mortgage broker and always providing unbiased mortgage advice,” the letter says.“We’ve recently partnered with OnTheMarket to provide both homeowners and property buyers easy access to our independent expert advice, helping more people find the right mortgage.”FuriousBut Pymm, who operates his own in-house mortgage brokerage, is furious that OnTheMarket has therefore passed one of the addressees supplied to it for Property Alert registration to Charcol to canvass his customers for mortgage business.“Between 20 and 30% of my agency’s income comes from financial services and this revenue is particularly important at the moment,” says Pymm.The Negotiator contacted OTM to put Pymm’s concerns to them. It has not denied on the record that Property Alert leads are being passed over to Charcol.A spokesperson for OnTheMarket said: “When consumers set up a property alert or send an email lead to an agent, they have the choice to opt into OnTheMarket sending them relevant information. OnTheMarket does not pass on consumers’ email addresses to third parties.“After a comprehensive analysis to identify a high-quality mortgage partner, we have agreed to enter a partnership with John Charcol which has over 40 years’ experience as an independent mortgage adviser.“We believe this partnership will enhance our users’ search experience to ultimately understand the kind of property they can afford while supported by the expertise of independent advisers with access to thousands of mortgages.”Read more about OTM. Pymm and Co Norwich OnTheMarket John Charcol April 22, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentMichael Day, Integra Property Services Integra Property Services 22nd April 2020 at 12:44 pmUnderstand why the agent might feel this way but it is clear when an individual signs up for alerts they can clearly opt in or out and, if on, their info may be shared with advertisers and others including other agents.OTM are the data controller here and they used it in accordance with their privacy policy – the data, at no stage, belonged to the agent in question.A bit of a non story really.

Gillian’s Wonderland Pier Marks 90th Season

first_imgGillian’s Wonderland Pier on the Ocean City Boardwalk will offer fun and adventures for families. (Photo credit Wiki commons) By Maddy VitaleWhen entering Gillian’s Wonderland Pier, where rides and amusements have delighted families for generations on the Ocean City Boardwalk, one may feel as if they’ve stepped into a time warp.And for the throngs of visitors who keep coming back to the amusement park that boasts one of the largest Ferris wheels on the East Coast at 144 feet high, nostalgia is a good thing.This was the first weekend that Wonderland Pier was open for business for the season. The park, which was founded in 1929, will be open during the week as well after Memorial Day.An ornate carousel that dates back to the 1920s is a staple for families who try their luck at the brass rings, a game they play while riding atop the carved steeds. There is an array of rides for kiddies to older children, including bumper cars, roller coasters, a log flume and a ride that plunges thrill seekers 120 feet down.The vintage carousel continues to be a favorite. (Courtesy Gillian’s Wonderland Pier)Reliving childhood for just a moment while watching children giggle and shout in excitement are commonplace at Wonderland Pier.And on the 90th anniversary of the amusement park, owner Jay Gillian said it has been a wonderful ride.Jay Gillian is the third generation owner of the amusement park, which was founded by his grandfather, David Gillian. The park was handed over to his father, Roy Gillian, before Jay followed in his footsteps.“It’s been an honor to be a part of the tradition of families enjoying the amusements in Ocean City through the generations,” said Gillian, who is also the mayor of Ocean City.He continued, “I am looking forward to honoring my grandfather, David Gillian, my uncle, Bob Gillian, and most of all my dad, Roy Gillian, on this summer’s anniversary of the Gillian family being on the Boardwalk for 90 years.”Suggesting a strong summer ahead, people lined up this weekend to get their discounted tickets, which are also on sale April 20.Families forgot the clouds and fog as they made their way into the pier. Children tugged on their parents and pointed to different rides they wanted to go on during their day of fun.An vintage photo of Gillian’s Wonderland Pier showcasing the old Ferris wheel. (Photo courtesy Gillian’s Wonderland Pier)Austen Fong, 3, of King of Prussia, Pa., knew her favorite ride. “The carousel,” she said with a smile and determination.Her mother, Michelle Fong, just smiled. The Fongs were visiting Austen’s grandmother, Kathy Fong, of Egg Harbor Township.“I was here yesterday to get the discounted tickets and we all decided to come down today,” Kathy Fong said. “Our family has been coming down for 35 years. We love Gillian’s for the rides and friendly atmosphere and they even do birthday parties.”Like the Fongs, Shelly Wiley and her sister, Brenda Halloran, both of Garnet, Pa., with a summer home they share in Ocean City, have been visiting the resort town and going to Gillian’s Wonderland Pier since they were little.From left, Taylor Halloran, 12, her mother, Brenda Halloran, her sister, Shelly Wiley, and her husband, Brett, with their children, Brielle, 6, and Drew, 5, all of Garnet, Pa., have their ride tickets ready.“We grew up coming here and now our kids are doing the same,” Wiley said.Wiley’s daughter, Brielle, 6, and son, Drew, 5, anxiously awaited the ride tickets. Their cousin, Taylor Halloran, 12, took them over to see what the claw game was all about until they could head to the rides.They planned to ride the race cars and the carousel and then get some ice cream, they said.Brielle said she wanted to go on the log flume and can’t wait to do that later in the season when it opens. Drew said he likes all the rides.The big celebration for the 90-year milestone will be held in June. The date has yet to be set.The log flume is a popular ride at the pier. (Courtesy Gillian’s Wonderland Pier)Melissa Brown, who handles public relations at Gillian’s Wonderland Pier, said that the anniversary is really a yearlong celebration.She noted that the carousel, one of her favorite rides, will be a centerpiece of the anniversary festivities.“It’s always fun to watch families playing the brass rings game on the carousel,” Brown said.There are many things that make Gillian’s Wonderland Pier special, she emphasized.“Wonderland Pier is still very classic,” Brown said. “Generation after generation of people love it and keep coming back.”For more information visit www.gillians.com.

first_imgBy Maddy VitaleWhere else can you see Chubby Checker, Kate Flannery from the show “The Office,” a host of beauty queens and SpongeBob SquarePants all in one place — on the water no less?Only in Ocean City.On Saturday evening, thousands of spectators watched the 65th annual Night In Venice boat parade in Ocean City unfold along the bayfront.Crowds watched in amusement as boats glided by decorated in everything from “The Greatest Show,” which was a crowd pleaser, to a “lobster boat” called “Mobster Lobsters.” There was even a boat with an ’80s theme of Ocean City’s former Strand Theater.(Video courtesy of Ian Crowley with special thanks to Kirk & Suzy Dolaway and Kenny Chesney)When Chubby Checker’s boat floated by Bayside Center, 520 Bay Ave., he waved to the onlookers and the crowd cheered. Flannery and Caissie Levy, star of Broadway’s version of “Frozen,” were also fan favorites at the parade.The parade lineup also included former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell, The Ocean City Theatre Company Show Choir, the Cousin’s Band and performer Andrew Hink. Dignitaries and officials also made appearances, including Mayor Jay Gillian, members of City Council and the Ocean City Beach Patrol.Music accompanied some of the boats and, depending on the tunes, delighted the spectators.Chubby Checker waves to the crowds.The boat parade was not the only event Saturday. There was also the decorated bayfront home contest. A fireworks display capped the entertainment.Michele Gillian, executive director of the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce, said the event was exciting.“It was a great Night In Venice,” Gillian said. “The weather was better than ever. Over 80 boats participated. A lot of homes were decorated. The back bays rocked the night away with a spectacular fireworks display that topped off a wonderful event in Ocean City.”While thousands of spectators lined the bayfront, thousands more attended private parties at homes along the route from the Ocean City-Longport Bridge to Tennessee Avenue.The Wellens family, of Pitman, waits to see their first Night In Venice.Brooke Wellens, of Pitman, and her husband, Roger, and children, Chloe, 12, and Colby, 9, were excited for their first Night In Venice.They drove to Ocean City and grabbed a table at Bayside Center early enough to nibble on their dinner before the boat parade.“We come down for a week every year,” Brooke said. “We aren’t down for vacation this week, but wanted to come for Night In Venice. This is our first boat parade ever.”Chloe’s excitement grew as she talked about her favorite attractions. “I want to see the boats and the fireworks,” she exclaimed.Her brother echoed her sentiments.Sara Gault and her family live a long way from Ocean City now — in Kansas. She grew up in the Cherry Hill area.As Gault sat with family and friends in beach chairs along the bayfront awaiting the main event, she said, “My family grew up going to Ocean City for vacations. There is nothing like Ocean City.”“Everybody comes back here — even just to visit — because it is so special,” she added.Miss Night In Venice pageant winners wave to the crowd.Officials said home decoration and boat decorating contest results will be available Sunday.Ocean City Beach Patrol Capt. Jack Jernee was instrumental in planning Night In Venice in 1954 as part of the 75th anniversary celebration of the city’s incorporation.The first Night In Venice was actually in 1907, with cottages and bungalows along the bay illuminated with lights and torches, according to Ocean City historian Fred Miller.A U.S. Coast Guard boat holding more than two Auxiliary Coast Guard members led the parade.The celebration ended with a fireworks display and bonfire on one of the islands in the bay.This boat celebrates the 65th Night In Venice.The event lasted for a few years, then was revived in the 1920s before the modern run of 65 consecutive years began.Jernee had remembered the event from the 1920s when he brought it back, according to city spokesman Doug Bergen, who also provided some of the history of the Night In Venice.Kate Flannery has a good time entertaining spectators.Mayor Jay Gillian and his wife, Michele Gillian, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce, wave to the spectators.City Council joins in the parade.The Night In Venice parade showcased more than 80 boats. “The Greatest Show” boat was a crowd pleaser at the 65th annual Night In Venice boat parade in 2019.last_img read more
