We’re best friends now, right?
“I sold a woman a newly renovated single-family townhouse in Bed-Stuy. She was friendly and nice to work with, but then gradually became overly friendly! It graduated from texts asking for drinks to her actually asking me to move in with her. At first I thought she was just joking around, but she said, ‘It would be great to have some help with the mortgage. You could live in this bedroom, and you did say you liked the neighborhood.’ I was absolutely blown away. It took me a while to realize that she was being 100% serious. And she was. We closed on the deal, and perhaps she found another roommate!” -- Anonymous broker from Corcoran
Are you decent?
“Our former assistant had an appointment to run an open house. She arrived at the building and the doorman gave her the key to the apartment. She proceeded to open the door and found a screaming naked elderly woman in front of her, at which point, in shock, she shut the door. Turns out that she had arrived in the wrong building. The doorman had simply given her the key to the same apartment number, in the wrong building. Needless to say, going forward, she double checks her addresses.” -- Anonymous broker from Compass
