BOSTON, Mass - Golf Life Real Estate (www.golfliferealestate.com), a state-of-the-art, golf lifestyle real estate marketing company dedicated to exceptional customer service assisting future home owners in purchasing property in gated, golf communities, has delayed its launch date due to unexpected circumstances.
Golf Life Real Estate (GLRE) was expected to open for business on February 1, 2019, featuring a variety of real estate services for golf-centric real estate buyers, sellers, investors, renters and real estate professionals.
However, as its launch date neared, Golf Life Real Estate, LLC was targeted with a frivolous civil lawsuit by Florida-based attorneys representing Golf Coast Magazine, Inc.
In short, the little-known southwestern Florida golf publication threatened to financially harm GLRE and its brand perception through an allegation of copyright infringement.
In response to the pending lawsuit initiated by Golf Coast Magazine, Board Members of Golf Life Real Estate, LLC issued the following joint statement:
“We recognize obstacles when launching a start-up company. The team at Golf Life Real Estate has been hard at work for many months preparing to launch a one-of-a-kind national real estate company focusing exclusively on golf lifestyle,” Golf Life Real Estate, LLC Board Members said in a joint statement released from their Boston, Massachusetts headquarters.
“Our innovative Golf Lifestyle Concierge program has created a positive buzz from real estate agents who specialize in selling real estate in gated, golf communities and who are ready, willing and able to work with our company.
“As we prepped for launch, it was quite a shock to receive a letter from a Florida-based personal injury lawyer, accusing GLRE of copyright infringement and demanding payment on behalf of their client, Golf Coast Magazine.
“While we feel the accusations are without merit and frivolous in nature, the general practice in these kind of copyright cases is to request a takedown, especially considering the content of interest holds no creative/ideation value and is not protected by U.S. Copyright laws (e.g. catchwords, catchphrases, mottoes, slogans, or short advertising expressions).
“We look forward to resolving the issue as soon as possible, in or out of court."
Through its innovative golf lifestyle concierge program, streamlining the relocation process, is one of many services Golf Life Real Estate will offer. The business will also feature an exclusive golf Multiple Listing Service (MLS), Golf Life Real Investment Trust targeted for high-net worth investors, a For Sale by Owner (“FSBO”) category; listings via independent real estate agents; golf courses for sale; short-term rentals targeting “snowbirds” and event travelers (e.g. Ryder Cup); and a treasure trove of content related to the golf lifestyle.
GLRE is a registered real estate broker of record in four states – Florida, Arizona, South Carolina and Massachusetts.
