Realtor Steps Outside For Cigarette, Lights House On Fire

August 3, 2016

Losing a listing can be a huge hit to a realtor’s psyche, reputation, and pocket book. It is common for a seller to switch real estate agents if their house does not sell in the time frame of the listing agreement. Sometimes the realtor does a poor job at marketing the property and other times the house is just overpriced. Neither situation was the case for Jason Bruce, a 34-year-old real estate salesman in Cincinnati. During a general inspection, Jason stepped out to the backyard to have a cigarette. “I only smoke when I’m drinking or if I’m stressed,” Jason claimed. “I had a showing across town and the inspector was taking forever. I thought I might have to push back my appointment, so I decided to rip a heater.” According to the Cincinnati Fire Department, Jason flicked his cigarette into some native foliage that flowed into the wooden deck out back. After his smoke, Jason went upstairs and ended up having a lengthy conversation about the air conditioning unit with the inspector. “I had no idea what the hell he was even talking about. He went on for like an hour about the dirty filter or some sh** and before I knew it the den was in flames,” said Jason. The pair immediately called the fire department, but it was too late. The house burnt to the ground in less than two hours as the firemen managed to save the guest house. Nobody was injured. The seller has remained silent, but is taking legal action on Jason, who blamed the incident on the inspector. It is safe to say that Jason will not be getting an extension on the listing agreement.

I hate it when that happens…


Did you attempt to verify this story from another source?

Was his name Kevin :lol: :mrgreen:

Another reason I’m glad I don’t smoke.

That’s the same link from the OPs post.

Our Story

We wanted to take a different approach on the real estate industry. In the midst of a sales drought, we met up at a bar in Santa Monica and came up with the idea of capturing the inner monologue of a real estate agent. A couple beers later we created the name, locked down the social media handles, and started writing.

A lot of people ask us what is it that you guys actually do? What are you trying to accomplish? We wanted to create something that we would enjoy reading. We grew tired of the conventional real estate media publications and decided to create our own platform that consist of highly engaging, socially driven, relatable content for all real estate professionals. The most important aspect is to always be funny and real. What we are experiencing as real estate agents is insane and hilarious. There is no other industry where this **** happens. People needed an outlet and we gave it to them.

And this explains what??

And then there is this Inspector clogs toilet

That’s a pretty sh tty inspector!

IBS perhaps?

I guess that they’re trying to be “The Onion” of real estate.

That was my opinion as well. I was a bit surprised at first as realtors don’t typically have a sense of humor. :razz:

Realtor Was Not Expecting Such Hard-Hitting Questions About Water Pressure

ALBANY, NY—Left staggered and dumbfounded by the unexpected line of inquiry, real estate agent Jeffrey Tindell told reporters Monday he was totally unprepared for a potential buyer’s hard-hitting questions about the water pressure in a local three-bedroom townhouse recently listed for sale. “The showing seemed to be going pretty well, but then, out of nowhere, this guy starts grilling me on all this stuff about whether the water pressure is lower upstairs than it is downstairs—he just completely blindsided me,” said a visibly exasperated Tindell, recounting how his feet were held to the fire with questions about whether the previous resident had been happy with the pressure and whether the showerhead would likely need to be replaced. “I tried to change the subject and bring his attention back to the newly installed Berber carpeting, but he just wouldn’t let up. By the time he hit me with that question about whether the pressure in the shower is still good when the dishwasher is running, I knew I was in way, way over my head.” Tindell added that he was still reeling at the mere thought of the prospective buyer actually following through on his promise to send “a few follow-up questions” about the washer-dryer hookups.

Hey it wasn’t me. I swear if wash’t.:roll:

When posting satirical articles it would be best to say so upfront.
