Alltown Real Estate

Hello,

 

It was brought to my attention that I should claim my Google My Business profile. While do this, I found that I have a duplicate, unclaimed business listing on Google. I'm not even sure how it ended up there.  I read that I can merge them, but I would first need to claim ownership of the profile, which I cannot do because I have no way to receive mail at the listed address.

 

I own Alltown Real Estate in Smithfield, RI and just submitted the postcard request to claim ownership. But, when you search for it, a second business listing comes up for "Ed Duffy Real Estate" in Warwick RI. The listed address was an old proxy office that my former employer owned.  The phone number and website URL are owned by me, but the address was something I never used.

 

How can I proceed in getting this removed or merged with my current Alltown Real Estate business listing?

Hello, here is the info.  I am trying to get the unverified business removed. I am not sure how it even got on Google as it was never an office or address of mine.  However it does come up when people search my name or phone number.

Verified - "Alltown Real Estate" (Smithfield, RI)

Unverified - "Ed Duffy Real Estate" (Warwick, RI)

 

1. Alltown Real Estate

2. 357 Putnam Pike, Suite 3, Smithfield, RI, 02917

3. 401-949-5400

Also, I have one review under "Ed Duffy Real Estate".  Is there a way to transfer this or will it be lost? If it's lost, it is not a big deal.

 

Thanks.
