What is the craziest request from a luxury client?

In July, Inman contemplates the glitter and glamor of the luxury real estate market. Snapshots of the country’s top luxury markets, tips from top agents, features on what affluent owners want now and a breakdown of the best sellers of 2023 (so far) are all in the cards leading up to Inman Luxury Connect, August 7-8 at the Aria in Las Vegas. Make plans to join us now.

Any buyer or seller can be difficult, with expectations that go far beyond the normal, common definition of customer service. Now add millions of dollars to the purchase price, and you could be dealing with a completely disconnected luxury shopper. Whoever thinks your commission is making you their personal servant or, even worse, their emotional punching bag.

We wonder how different the rich are from the rest of us, so tell us all: what’s the craziest request a luxury client has ever made of you? Did they expect 24/7 personal attention? Impossible conditions for their purchase or sale? Did they want you to pay for costly repairs or upgrades? Were they completely disconnected from the process? Let us know below.

We will publish our findings with the best answers next week on Tuesday.
