One of my agents, notorious for attracting unusual clients and finding herself in uncomfortable situations, has now reached a pinnacle in her adventures in real estate.
These clients seemed normal by her standards, if you consider a female psychologist “normal” who is looking for a home with a man who is not her husband but is wearing a wedding band. The only other clue there was something a little quirky was the fact that the woman had to use the bathroom in every home they were in. Maybe she just had a bladder problem . . .
So eventually the agent found the perfect home for this particular couple – every single thing on their wish list was here. And they must have loved it, as they lingered in it for over two hours. The woman sat in every chair and in every room, meditating and feeling the “zen”. They looked into every nook and cranny, until at one point, they went missing! My agent was about to panic, when she heard strange noises coming from a bathroom. It turns out the 2 of them went to explore the ultra luxurious bath, locked the door, and were alone in there for 15 minutes. When they finally emerged, looking a little disheveled, the male said “Well, we figured out how the bidet works”!
My agent almost passed out – she was mortified, not to mention grossed out.
To add insult to injury, they didn’t make an offer – they had to go on vacation to think about it. Maybe the man is her client. Or maybe they both need to have their heads examined. I know I have to wash my hands now.
You can’t make this stuff up!
