Meet Sonny Jimenez, the Real Estate and Plagiarism King of Houston

Categories: Whatever

FacebookScreenshotForCraig.jpg
Let's say you want to be a real estate broker in Houston, but you're a bit of a fuckin' idiot.

Relying on underhanded tactics online in the hope that it'll drive traffic your way, you create a Web site called, oh, Texasrealtypros.com, and then, in a section of alleged client reviews and testimonials, you copy and paste testimonials from a real estate Web site based in Oregon. So you have 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.

You also start a Facebook page, called Houston Heights, and you post links to stories from other sites, only they don't link to the original source, they link to Texasrealtypros.com, and, in many cases do not credit the source. (In your page's "About" section, you paste copy ripped from a Southern Living article).

You're also too lazy-slash-dumb to check to see if they're current; so you wind up doing things like lifting a January 2012 Houston Business Journal article about D'Amico's Italian Cafe proudly weathering the tough economy on July 2, 2013, the day the restaurant announces its closure to Eater.

That comes on the heels of pirating a three-year-old Houston Press Eating our Words blog piece on the top ten Heights restaurants, by which point half the restaurants are no longer in business.

Then the editor of the Houston Press calls and asks what's up. You kinda blow her off. Because you are, after all, Sonny Jimenez, self-proclaimed "Real Estate King," and, as evidenced in a YouTube clip of you wearing a porkpie hat and gold chain while partying with the ladiez, you're just that cool.

Just curious.. Did you contact HAR Houston Association of Realtors to see if they could investigate his behavior?  They have an ethics committee which should be made aware of this man's obvious disregard for any kind of ethical behavior.

I think I almost fought this guy at a bar once when he palmed a girls face. If its the same guy, he hid behind his three friends while I came after him.

Is there a reason you spell out your punctuation?  Go ahead and use the / key.  It's right there!  No need to spell out "slash."

This is hilarious, yet sad. Poor guy doesn't have a circle like mine that'd smack you in the back of the head at the first sign of stupidity. Great rant though, Houston Press. :D

As recently as yesterday afternoon, that dumbass was quoting Joel Osteen on his page. From the endless lies this fool tells, it doesn't appear that he actually listens to anything Joel is preaching.

@Julie Jo Prejean Well, if your only concern is "What's in it for me," then I'll put it in simple terms - if the guy's lying about the most innocuous details, then how else do you think he's lying to you? Results of the inspection? History of the property? Taking money under the table to NOT give you the best deal possible, or to get you to a lender or title company that charges a little more off the top than you might have had to pay otherwise? If you want a liar working for you, then great. But why do you think he's lying FOR you and not TO you, and what makes you so sure that price is fair?

@Duffy Elmer SONNY is a LIAR and A THIEF ! what LEVEL are You on ? So Admirable ? who YOU !?

The blog reported his actions, he chose to A) not respond and B) threaten them with legal action if they published.  Admittedly, Malisow hands out F-bombs and 'Douchebag' nametags like they're candy in the blog, but otherwise this piece just seems to prevent another hapless customer from calling a dishonest businessman. I don't know why you think keeping shtum is noble.
