Aussie real estate agent's response to 'sleazy' message praised
A real estate company in Melbourne has shared their response to a client's "sleazy" comments and the ingenious way to deal with unwanted remarks has amused many people on TikTok.
Create Real Estate, in the Melbourne suburb of Sunshine, recently shared a video on its social media page which featured a screenshot of a message chain between a female agent and a client. In it, the man named "John" asked the agent named Meika for help finding him a place.
"I saw your profile on realestate.com – I was wondering if you could help find me a place. I’m looking for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house based in Sunshine," his message read. The agent replied to say she had "a few upcoming properties available" and asked if John would like to arrange a time to discuss them further.
But the conversation changed when his response turned "sleazy", resulting in a very unusual voice message from the agent. "No thank you, Please send through the addresses for open houses that you will be attending so I can see you [wink face emoji]," his message said. A voice message response from the agent quickly followed.
"Hey John, it’s Mieka here. Yep, we’ve got a couple of opens you can attend, I’ll send the addresses. It’s just … Oh my god! … " the voice note said before the sounds of screeching and car's crashing took over. "How to stop sleazy guys from messaging you ever again," the agent wrote on the TikTok post, adding "sometimes u just gotta," in the caption.
People react to 'hilarious' response
People on TikTok praised the agent for thinking on her feet, with many admitting her response was "hilarious".
"This made me laugh so much more than it should have," one said.
One viewer described the guy's move as "cringe", while another suggested she "should have agreed and then had your boss show instead."
The business page has amassed a huge 1.2 million likes. It shares a series of humorous clips involving staff and offers a glimpse into their work life.
