A real estate agent hired to sell Premier Doug Ford's Etobicoke home has been asked to stop using the Premier's name and photo in her advertisements.

Flyers for Ford's Princess Anne Manor home, which has not yet come to market, were distributed around Toronto by real estate agent Monica Thapar. The flyer, images of which have circulated on social media, says "Moving Ontario! We JUST LISTED Premier Doug Ford's home in Princess Anne Manor." It also features a photo of Ford's house with a for sale sign outside of it, and another shot of Ford and his wife Karla signing documents.

Another version of the ad, reportedly sent out in a marketing email, features a cartoon version of Thapar clutching a maple leaf and wearing a shirt emblazoned with "Agent to the Premier!"

Ford's office confirmed to STOREYS that "the Premier did not authorize the ad and has instructed the real estate agent to remove it immediately." The office did not answer a question as to whether Thapar's services are still being used.

Thapar did not respond to request for comment.

Although Ford's home has not yet gone up on the MLS, sources close to the family told the Toronto Starthat it will officially go up for sale in July. The asking price for the home was not disclosed, but the assessed value is $1.84M.

Ford has dealt with a number of safety issues at his home over the past two years. In December 2021, it was reported that he and his family were unable to get inside their their home due to anti-vaccine protestors demonstrating outside. Protestors employed megaphones and flashlights, disturbing neighbours and causing distress. And several months earlier, in June of last year, a man with a butcher knife was disarmed and arrested after slashing neighbours' tires and then making his way to the Premier's doorstep.
