Over the next nine days we will be publishing exclusive extracts from Confessions of an Estate Agent by Rosalind Russell. Short, snappy and hilarious, these excerpts collated by Russell are guaranteed to brighten your day. You’ll never look at estate agents in quite the same way again
A young, unmarried colleague returned from a valuation, his ears glowing a tell-tale pink. Eventually we coaxed the story out of him. He’d rung the bell, and the door was opened by the owner who was breast feeding her baby son. Flustered, he’d followed her into the lounge which was dominated by a large and ornate fireplace.
Inevitably, the first words out of his mouth were “What a lovely breast! Chimney! I mean chimney breast.” Apparently the nursing mother was quite amused, but it’ll take a while for my colleague – unnamed to spare his blushes – to recover.
