We like writing award submissions. We also like marketing real estate. So much so that we’re now “award-winning” real estate marketers.

TORONTO, November 20, 2012 – CBC recently aired the Redwood Classics episode of The BIG Decision. Although the company is thankful for the national brand exposure, after weeks of shooting, the broadcast this week contained factual inaccuracies pertaining to Redwood Classics’ finances.


The parent company that owns and operates Redwood Classics is not financially unstable. As a privately held company, financial information is not made public. Additionally, the company did not request a cash investment. Rather, the team agreed to do this episode in hopes of receiving in-kind marketing services.


Further, while Redwood Classics’ key focus is on creating a high-quality end product for its clients, marketing is hugely important to the brand as well. As such, the team has allocated a large amount of funding to initiatives like social media, editorial outreach, press releases and the launch of a 2013 catalogue.


“We are part of a thriving promotional industry that is only getting bigger and stronger with every year that passes,” said Kathy Cheng, Director of Sales & Marketing for Redwood Classics. “Our parent company has been a main supplier for notable international and domestic fashion and retail brands for more than 25 years. The launch of Redwood Classics has contributed to sales growth and the increase of the company’s workforce since its entry into the promotional marketplace two years ago. We currently have plans for expansion to accommodate this growth.”


Since the airing of the show, Redwood Classics has been inundated with calls and emails about its product and is confident that the message taken away was its first-class quality and Canadian roots. “We are committed to the dynamic promotional product industry,” added Cheng. “In the coming months and years, Redwood Classics will proudly continue to thrive as Canada’s go-to full-service supplier of superior-quality, handcrafted garments.”
