NJ Realtors Use Listing for Hookups

Sometimes you can't make this up.  Two New Jersey real estate agents are accused of using a listed home for their own dalliances.

Robert Lindsay, a former president of the Passaic County Board of Realtors, and Jeannemarie Phelan.
Our two lovebirds.
What is apparently ethically objectionable about that is they apparently deliberately listed it at a higher price so that it would continue to be available to them.  Oh, and apparently there is a rule about doing anything with a client's property outside of business purposes.

Robert Lindsey, who actually listed the house, is a former former president of the Passaic County Board of Realtors.  He left the firm he was at when the alleged conduct occurred.  At the time of the move, he was described as:

“a rarity in real estate – he’s not only among the very top producers, but he does things right.” 

No word on if Jeannemarie Phelan agrees with that or not.
