Douglas Elliman broker Ann Cutbill Lenane wants to find her soulmate and has taken out an ad to help get the job done.
“I have managed to sell billions of dollars worth of New York City real estate, but the one thing I haven’t been able to get done is to find a wonderful single divorced dad to remarry,” she says in the 30-second ad, which is up on YouTube. To drive home the point that she is looking for love in the Big Apple, the broker shot the clip in front of and inside a yellow New York City cab.
The campaign is called “A Man for Ann,” and Lenane “aka Annie gets it done,” has posted a series of questions on her website for potential suitors to respond to.
They include, “Why do you love what you do for a living?” “What feeds your soul?” and “Why on earth are you responding to a crazy lady’s ad in a cab?”
It also asks the men to upload three photos but implores them to “keep them G rated.”
Lenane clearly has a sense of humor about the ad, saying, “If you’re a gentleman with a kind and generous soul and you love your mother but you still don’t live with her, and can appreciate a 56-year-old fit and fabulous woman, feel free to give me a call,” she says in her ad.
“So wish me luck, and enjoy the ride.” — Eddie Small
