One of the largest property brokerage companies in the country is based in Kansas City and has been for 90 years.Friday night the CEO of United Real Estate Group goes undercover, appearing in an episode of Undercover Boss on CBS."It was a great experience," said CEO Danny Duffy.The man is all buttoned up with a starched shirt and suit for his interview with KCTV5 at his Northland officeBut, to go undercover as Simon Pine, he donned some tie-dye to get down and dirty on the front lines.“That was not a good lookAnd it wasn’t just the wig – I called it the wet cat,” Duffy said with a laugh“It did have a lot of adhesive tapeEvery night I had to rip that thing offI'm losing my hair anyway so it just accelerated the process.”Duffy had watched Undercover Boss a few times over the last seven seasons and knew he wouldn't be like those other bosses who wound up in a puddle of tears by the end of the experience.“I thought, I’m not doing that (cry),” he said.He wouldn’t divulge if he remained tear-free or not.We do know he tried his hand as an auctioneer in Houston, TXHe did okay with that gig, at least when you compare it to his efforts as an interior decorator in Austin, TXHe was also handed a machete when he worked as a land appraisal specialist in Gainesville, FL.It was his stint as a real estate agent that brought the most scrutiny from his employeeBased off the teaser video, Duffy was too quick to point out the home’s flaws.Undercover Boss aired Friday at 8 p.mon KCTV5 and Duffy, his friends and family gathered to watch. "He came out in this disguise and this transformation and we all just dropped, we were speechlessIt was pretty amazing," said his wife, Chris Duffy."I think everyone enjoyed itThat was the point and I think we also found incredible heroes that really showed us that the world is a lot more important than any business or job," Danny Duffy said.Click here to support Tori's Future Fund by United Real Estate Group -
