Love your real estate agent

An email arrived today from a friend who we spent some time with last night.

Just following up on our conversation last night about the house we went to the auction today . . . it was quoted at $630,000 . . . the opening bid was $750,000 !!!! - then after a battle between about four couples; it went to $865,000

They were just looking and knew the property would go for much more than the suggested price. I recall the suggested price range was $580,000 to $630,000.

How many adjectives can I come up with off the top of my head to describe real estate agents? Perhaps my view is coloured by having bought seven properties and sold five.

Lying, duplicitous, cheating, fraudulent, low life, smarmy.....you add some more.....if you can think of some positive words. The bad ones are known by everyone.
