The real state agent
A real estate agent has taken the phrase 'jumping through hoops' for your client to a new level by literally leaping off a cliff، daily mail reported.
In a video posted online، Jock Kooger from Bayleys Real Estate Agents in Auckland، New Zealand، jumped into the ocean at the request of the owners of a luxury house he is selling.
In the footage Mr Kooger can be seen launching himself from a cliff into the water، up the road from the house on East Avenue، Manly - wearing his full suit، jacket، and tie.
When he told the clients he would do anything to sell their house، one of the owners، Katie Buchanan، asked if he would 'even jump off a cliff?'
Mr Kooger was up to the challenge on the thankfully hot Auckland summer day. 'There was a little hesitation before I jumped but I had to do it in one take - I only had the one suit with me،' Mr Kooger told OneRoof.
'It was surprisingly easy to swim in the suit and tie but probably not recommended، especially with shoes،' he joked.
Katie and Tony Buchanan bought the three level house five years ago and the pair، who run a building company، have spent a great deal of time، energy، and money renovating it to luxury standards.
The house has a current value of $1.5 million but Mr Kooger was hoping to get more if the right buyer came along.
The five bedroom home features spectacular ocean views، open plan living areas، and a self contained guest flat.
Katie Buchanan said the stunt convinced them they had the right man for the job.
'We knew he was up for anything so we got a videographer to film it and then I climbed out on a branch to get another angle. You can hear me squealing with delight in the video،' she said.
