Recently, I heard an awesome REALTOR parody of Adele’s hit song Hello. When I first saw the headline, I wasn’t sure if I really wanted to click on it. I had a couple of reasons for not wanting to click. ( video below, don’t miss it! )
- My kids were in the room and they were sure to make fun of me.
- I just “knew” it was going to be a waste of time.
Against my better judgement, I clicked on the video and was soon chuckling like crazy at some of the lines.
While it is an awesome rendition of the popular hit song, she nails some really fun scenarios that any real estate professional has to find amusing. There are lines that poke fun of traditional REALTOR stereotypes, as well as funny little things that we have all dealt with.
The video mentions a few things like selling a home quickly, for over asking price and then praying for the appraisal to come in. There’s the line about a “fancy ride” that so many people in our business feel are a necessity. Of course, you can’t have a REALTOR parody without talking about a good wine and cheese happy hour.
Some of the real gems are when Zillow is mentioned.
“Zillow isn’t ever right, I want to scream go fly a kite!” And I had to laugh when she mentions that Zillow has never been inside of the home. Just funny stuff that we deal with all of the time. Yeah, yeah I know that the big Z can be a great tool, but it is just part of the skit that keeps any self-respecting real estate professional chuckling for about 5 1/2 minutes of a well played video.
Give it a click and watch for yourself.
Hello was done by Megan Hill Mitchum, a REALTOR in Iowa. Megan did a great job in capturing a really fun and light-hearted parody of this love it / hate it song. I found Megan on Twitter. You should go follow her, too. Tell her that all of us here at the Phoenix Real Estate Guy say, Hello…

I haven’t heard this song yet, but I definitely need to now. The video was awesome, and I like to see people who can laugh about common problems we encounter in the real estate industry. There are always good realtors out there I believe, who truly want to help you get the best possible deal. Thanks for posting this.
