All male Real Estate agents are potential sexual predators

Name suppression means nobody knows who this man is

A real estate agent facing sex charges, including attempted rape, is continuing to sell homes after having his licence renewed.

The agent, who has name suppression, also faces 11 charges of unlawful sexual connection between December 2011 and May 2016.

The Real Estate Agents Authority cancelled the agent’s licence in September after a police vetting report revealed the charges.

The man, who renewed his licence in January 2016, said he had not been charged at the time.

He argued a previous charge of committing an indecent act was dealt with under the Police Diversion Scheme, so did not need to be disclosed.

In November, the disciplinary tribunal overturned the authority’s decision and the man was able to continue selling houses.

We don’t know if the alleged offending happened as part of carrying out his job.  Even so, would you want an alleged rapist to show you around an empty house?

All male estate agents are now under a cloud.
