Not the efficiency required to land the Glengarry Account. Alert Alec Baldwin!
Their clients "need a lot of attention" and "we're working deals all day," yet all five employees of this real estate agency decided to drop everything and spend the afternoon at the local AT&T store to negotiate a phone deal. Yeah, that's practical.
BTW, are Real Estate Agents still easy "go-to's" when commercials want to stereotype zombie, fast-talking, money-obsessed habitual liars and cheats? Actually, I'll buy that. I've never met a Realtor who hadn't gone through a very obvious soul removal surgery. I rented a basement apartment from one who objected to turning the heat on when it was more than 60 degrees outside and tried to withhold my security deposit because the rug got ruined by flooding caused by torrential rains (this was my fault, somehow.) So yeah- realtors are scumbags. I get it. But they generally aren't time-wasters. I just can't see the entire staff of CenturyGoToHell piling into the company SUV for a field trip to the AT&T store, sorry.
I still don't think that it takes five to work out a phone-sharing deal, though. The woman who does all the talking looks perfectly capable of "closing" all by herself while the other four are back in the office fucking people out of their money, like a good Realtor should.
