"Hilarious and clever!" would be a quick summation for me. If you'd like something longer:
"Boog's impossible, yet real, story of the horrors of real estate will leave you laughing out loud. The clever twist at the end is evidence that Boog's a genius. Whether you are a realtor yourself or know nothing at all about the art of selling homes, you're sure to find this tale entertaining."
- ID Johnson, (sometimes having the endorsement of another author is helpful, even if no one has heard of me and I don't write in the same genre.)

It’s about a real estate deal that goes haywire in unimaginable ways for the author and main character who was going out of his way to help the crazy cat lady. It’s somewhat inspiring to take some of the most bizarre episodes of our own lives that could be turned into a laugh-out loud comedy.
The writing style was witty and conversational from the California realtor, Bob Boog. He uses a lot of parallel descriptions to describe the characters, one resembling Brad Pitt, another Will Farrell and a Jim Carrey reference to facial expressions. It also had some nice descriptions like, “dishes were stacked up and leaning in the sink like a ‘Cat in the Hat’ book.”
Throughout, I really wanted to know what happened next. The author promises an anti-climatic ending – and then over delivers with a very gratifying conclusion. A good narrative with good characters -- one suspects might be slightly exaggerated for better story telling. But a highly recommend book, and something that would be a worthwhile movie.
