Here's one Khan owns that Richard Webb apparently DID NOT help Khan acquire, but I just thought I'd mention it:
2222 4th St. N.
So I emailed Richard Webb to ask him for his side, letting him know in a not-very-subtle way that his assistance to Mahmood Khan was a detriment to our neighborhood. I told Webb that if he wanted to give me some kind of statement, I would print it fair and square. Here's what Webb has to say:
"I've helped Mahmood buy a number of homes. I've also helped a number of others purchase in North. In fact I just sold 1506 Emerson to a nice young owner occupant. My job is to sell houses - -if someone wants to buy one and has the means, I'm going to sell them one. I've sold over 50 homes in North Minneapolis in the past couple years and many have been remodeled, restored and sold or owner occupied. If you'd like me to reference some of the properties I'd be happy to -- because I certainly don't appreciate you calling me a 'Scum.'"
To which I respond: Scum.
There are many Realtors and real estate agents--some of whom I know personally--who wouldn't be involved in selling houses to scumlord slumlords. Not surprisingly, some of these nice folks actually live in North Minneapolis, which we prefer to call "NoMi." Richard, you are not REQUIRED to do business with a notorious slumlord, but it's something you choose to do, most likely because you worship Mammon, God of Money.
You are scum, Richard Webb, and Mahmood Khan is scum. And every time I hear of you selling a house to Khan, (time and energy permitting) I'll be happy to write in detail about your scummy co-dependency, which is ruining my neighborhood. I don't know why any "nice young owner occupant" would want to do business with you, Richard Webb, since (by your own admission) after selling them a lovely house you'd sell the house next door to slumlord Mahmood Khan, if he wanted the house and had money.
But I'll you what, Richard. I'll tell you what. Why don't you tell me the name of a real estate agent who is WORSE than you? Tell me the name of somebody who has sold MORE houses to a North Minneapolis slumlord than YOU have. Tell me and I'll be glad to write about THAT Realtor.
