Giggity, Giggity...

Giggity, Giggity…

Periodically, we at Mistakably Premier peer into the statistics of who has been visiting (okay, it’s more like every hour!), to get an idea of where most of our traffic comes from.  It’s probably no shock that a majority of it comes from the greater Cleveland area.  Sometimes, Google will bring a visitor from some distance place like Santiago, Chile, or Seoul, South Korea, or Cincinnati, Ohio.  They quickly see that this is not the site they’re looking for, and then click off to the next site.

But every now and then, we get a flood of traffic from a particular location that peaks our interest.  For example, when 19 Action News was preparing their story, we saw traffic from Atlanta, Georgia.  Just after the announcement of Mike DeWine’s actions against UPH, we got a bunch of hits from Columbus, Ohio.  Just prior to the Ohio Attorney General re-serving papers to Mr. K in Miami, we saw a bunch of hits from Miami Beach, Florida (was that Mr. K himself doing a bit of recon?).  It’s pretty interesting to see the patterns form.

So that got us wondering, why do you come to Mistakably Premier?  What’s the draw, and why do you come back?



Take That, Thigh Master!

So last night was the debut of the 19 Action News story on Unmistakably Premier Homes.

In case you missed it, click HERE to see it.

To be honest, we were a bit underwhelmed with the story, but then we realized that all of our stories could fill a whole 24 hour cable news channel, and to be fair to Danielle, she only had three and a half minutes to make her point.  Also, considering  the fact that Channel 19 is watched by more people than this scrappy old blog, we know that this story brought our plight to the attention of many many more.

So overall, we thought the story did it’s job well.  We especially enjoyed the visuals at the 1:33 mark!  What do you think?  Leave the comments below…


The House Horror – On Action 19 News Tonight!

Looks like the first teasers are out for tonight’s 19 Action News story on UPH!  Titled “The House Horror”, it blends Danielle Serino’s on-site interview with various B-roll, and the mandatory menacing announcer voice.

As with most teasers for the news, it’s very light on specifics, but we all know the plot!  One piece of new information – it’s confirmed that the story will run tonight on the 11 o’clock news, so set your DVRs!

Previously, we reported that Danielle Serino’s story about our favorite home builder would run sometime during the 4:30 to 6:00 hours of Action 19 News’ broadcast.  We just received an email that says something different:

Again it is September 20th on the 11pm news and possibly on the 10pm as well. It will be teased in the shows that air 4-6:30 pm.

So, in other words, we’re not really sure when it’ll air, other than sometime on September 20th.  So set those DVRs and VCRs for every stinking time Action 19 News is on!  We’ve compiled a list below, for your convenience…



12:00 PM – 12:30 PM

Action News at Noon

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Action News First at Four

5:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Action News at Five

Good Grief!  That’s a lot of news!

Ba de ya, say do you remember
Ba de ya, dancing in September
Ba de ya, never was a cloudy daaaaaay!

After much anticipation, Danielle Serino, Action 19 News Uber-Consumer Investigative reporter (and all around awesome Salsa dancer) has let us know that an air-date for the UPH story has been set.  Make sure you all set your DVRs (or, if you aren’t hip to that tech, VCRs) to record on Thursday, September 20th, sometime between the 4:30 and 6:30 News.

Check your Spam Filters, folks!

For all of you planning to attend tonight’s get-together, but haven’t received the info yet, please check your spam filters.  Some folks have emailed us stating they haven’t gotten the details!  For those asking, yes – the powwow is still planned for tonight.  If you haven’t received the details, post a response below, and we’ll try another method to get you the info!

Mark it on your calender: July 9th, 2012, 6:30 PM.  That’s the date and time when 19 Action News will be on location to tape interviews with us less-than-satisfied customers of UPH.  Wanna join the fun?  Then make sure you shoot us an email to to show your interest by July 4th.  If you RSVP, we’ll let you know the super secret meeting location (namely, the Mistakably Premier home offices) so you can attend!

Here at Mistakably Premier, we’ve been watching for any signs of UPH’s impending bankruptcy.  Looks like we’ve been looking in all the wrong places.  Well, that’s not entirely true.  We’ve been on the lookout in PACER, the online Federal repository of court cases, for anything related to Unmistakably Premier Homes.  What we forgot to look for is any of Mr. K’s other holdings, specifically, 7972 Ridge Road LLC.  You may recall that 7972 Ridge Road LLC is the company that is listed as the owner of the UPH as-of-now foreclosed offices on 1392 High Street in Wadsworth.  In any event, 7972 has filed for Chapter 11 reorganization.

So how did we stumble onto this bit of information?  Loyal reader, and UPH victim, Brian (not his real name) sent us the heads up about an article in for the tip regarding the article on Crain’s Cleveland Business online, published today.  It’s an interesting read, the highlights including:

  • UPH is “the target of more than $1.6 million in judgments in Medina and Cuyahoga county common pleas courts. The largest is a $1 million judgment to satisfy a note filed by Fifth Third Bank.” [Ed note:  We think they actually mean PNC (as referenced later in the article).  If that’s the case we brought you this story before Crain’s did!  Pulitzer perhaps?]
  • “The sale [of the 1392 High Street property at Sheriff’s sale] only netted one $990,000 bid, according to the bankruptcy filing.”
  • Liberty Township is hoping to “nab some money that Ohio Attorney General Michael DeWine will make available to help local governments cope with foreclosures,” hoping to “use it to demolish” an unfinished UPH home.

But the most interesting tidbit of them all was this:

The homebuilder also is the subject of a website dubbed “Mistakably Premier Homes” where dozens vent complaints about building quality or alleged nonperformance on home-sale contracts. The site has 45 names on a petition calling on the builder to honor warranties and contracts.

That’s right, our little blog and you, “the dozens”, were mentioned in Northeast Ohio’s leading source for weekly business news, analysis and commentary!  Couple this with our proposed Channel 19 appearance, and it’s like we’re the next Facebook (okay, maybe MySpace…)!

Special thanks to “Brian” for the tip!
