Most Ridiculous Broker Blast Ever?

Well, maybe not ever, but certainly in the last couple of months...

This afternoon I'm sitting at my computer grinding away on ARGUS when I see an email alert from Outlook with a broker blast from Colliers with this subject:


I'm thinking, "Oh, cool. Don't see a lot of Silicon Valley properties come up for sale. 40k SF is about in our wheelhouse--maybe there'll be a creative office conversion opportunity or something." Then I open the email that shows:



Apparently Gilroy is now considered part of Silicon Valley!!!! Wow, just wow. Look, I get it. You're trying to sell a crappy building in a crappy market, but come on, have a little bit of self respect.

For non Northern Californians, Gilroy is a solid 30 miles south of San Jose and it has a population of about 50k. Its claim to fame is hosting a "garlic festival" once a year. No, there is no tech there.

Just another sign of the times I suppose.
