AN estate agent has revealed the most annoying things that she has to deal with in her job, including getting blamed when a client's low offer is rejected and getting called up on national holidays to do a viewing.
Cass, a real estate agent from Austin, Texas, told how even when she advises clients that their offers need to be higher to be accepted, they still bid lower and take it out on her.
Taking to her TikTok account, the real estate agent explained one particularity annoying incident with a "Karen" client.
Posting under the domain @atx.realestate, Cass reenacted the incident with the woman in a post, she captioned "That’s not fair."
After 'Karen' asked why her home offer was refused by the seller, Cass told the client "As I advised you, there were several offers higher than ours and with better terms."
Karen responded: "Well we really wanted THIS house, did you tell them that?" to which Cass replied, "Some people wanted it more, sellers are gonna choose an offer that benefits them the most."

The client then started to get irate,saying that the sale was fixed in favour of the other buyer and blamed the estate agent for what happened.
"That's not fair. They probably know the buyers. You're supposed to get us a house" said Karen.
Adding "get us a house, or you're fired."
In another Post, Cass who lives in the US revealed that clients have no problem calling her up on national holidays to arrange an immediate viewing, including on Thanksgiving.

Reenacting the call with a client, Cass explained how she was surprised to even get a call from the woman on the biggest holiday of the year in America, let alone be asked to book her in for a viewing that day.
Explaining that it was not possible to bring her for a viewing immediately Cass said: "Text me the address and tomorrow I'll work on getting a showing set up for sometime this weekend" to which the client responded, "I want to see it today."
The client said she knew it was Thanksgiving but did not care, insisting she gets to see the house right away.
Cass said: "I'm sorry, I won't be showing homes today, and I don't want to bother the seller, or listing agent, who I'm sure are also spending time with their families.
"Don't even bother. Clearly, you are too busy to be helpful."
Unnacepting this, the client said "I knew I shouldn't have hired you. I should have gone with my neighbour" to which Cass responded: "You told me your neighbour's real estate licence expired three years ago."
Cass explained to the client that she was happy to help tomorrow, but she would be spending today with her family, the woman accused her of not putting her work first.
"Don't even bother. Clearly, you are too busy to be helpful" said the client.
