Speedy deletion nomination of Flat Fee Realty Inc., Brokerage[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Flat Fee Realty Inc., Brokerage, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Phrases like "every asset the Client needs to confidently complete" and "most modern solutions in every situation" and "All team members are focused on optimum customer service" are opinion and assertion rather than documented fact - see the guideline WP:Avoid peacock terms. Any statement in Wikipedia is liable to be challenged with "show me the reliable source, independent of the subject, which says so." The key policy on verifiablity includes:

The threshold for inclusion in Wikipedia is verifiability, not truth—that is, whether readers are able to check that material added to Wikipedia has already been published by a reliable source, not whether we think it is true. Editors should provide a reliable source for quotations and for any material that is challenged or likely to be challenged, or the material may be removed.

Even if the article were rewritten, I am not sure that the company is notable enough for an article. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a business listing directory, and does not expect to have an article about every business that exists (though there is a site, Wikicompany, which does). Our criterion for inclusion is called notability, which is not a subjective judgement but depends on whether the subject has "received significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject." Significant excludes listing type entries; reliable excludes Myspace, blogs, anywhere where anyone can post; independent excludes the company's own website, and mentions that are just press releases or based on press releases.

Also, articles must be written from a neutral point of view, and so people are strongly discouraged from writing about themselves or their own organizations, because of the conflict of interest involved. If you do write on such subjects, there is good advice in User:Uncle G/On notability#Writing about subjects close to you:

When writing about subjects that are close to you, don't use your own personal knowledge of the subject, and don't cite yourself, your web site, or the subject's web site. Instead, use what is written about the subject by other people, independently, as your sources. Cite those sources in your very first edit. If you don't have such sources, don't write.

For more advice, see the FAQ/Organizations, in particular the sections headed:
