I am sure the thought crosses a home sellers mind what might happen inside their house when they hand over their keys to the real estate agent. The level of trust between agents and their clients to respect their property is tantamount.
Unfortunately, in Wayne, New Jersey, two real estate agents decided to use a clients house for their sexual encounters. For a period of over a month, these agents had over 10 trysts in the empty house.
Fortunately, for the homeowners and the other people in Passaic County, these agents have been caught via cameras the homeowners set up. While their character has been sullied, no charges have been brought to the Passaic Board of Realtors, and the state has not taken any action yet, so these two can still legally sell homes, and have access to all the lock boxes in the county… That is not reassuring.
On Dec. 27, 2011, the security cameras in the Weiners’ home captured Lindsay entering the Weiners’ home at 12:49 p.m. and he was dressed casually. At 12:51 p.m., the security cameras show that Phelan entered the Weiners’ home and Phelan and Lindsay kissed and hugged in the kitchen. The security cameras further show that at 1:02 p.m., Lindsay and Phelan entered the master bedroom, undressed and proceeded to have sex on the Weiners’ bed,” the suit states. “A while later, the security cameras show Lindsay and Phelan getting dressed.”
From Dec. 27, 2011, to Jan. 23, 2012, according to the suit, the security cameras captured Lindsay and Phelan making 10 additional visits to the home.
All visits were for sexual encounters,” the suit states. “The last visit to the house by Lindsay and Phelan was on Jan. 23, 2012. Sandra Weiner happened to be checking the video cameras feed at the time and saw strange people in the house with what she thought were flashlights. The house was dark at the time. The Weiners called the local police, who then went to the house.”
The police opened the door to the house and found Lindsay pulling up his pants,” the suit states. “Lindsay lied to police by telling them that he was there to prepare the house for an open house. … Instead, Lindsay and Phelan were at the house to have sex.”
Michelle Perrone-Epstein, chief executive officer for the Passaic County Board of Realtors, said part of her agency’s job was to uphold a code of ethics. She was not aware of any action pending involving those named in the suit, but noted that the Passaic Count Board of Realtors has no legal authority. She said the New Jersey Real Estate Commission has the authority to revoke real estate agents’ licenses. It could not be immediately confirmed whether Lindsay and Phelan are still selling real estate. via NorthJersey.com
