January 23, 2019 – Scott Slimmon: Lifetime Withdrawal from Industry

Calgary, Alberta – On January 23, 2019, Scott Slimmon, previously a real estate associate in Red Deer, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.

At the time of his application, Mr. Slimmon was the subject of conduct proceedings under the Real Estate Act. The issues under investigation were whether Mr. Slimmon:

  • used his ability as a real estate associate to gain access to a property for a personal reason unrelated to selling the property
  • failed to be honest and provide complete information asked for as part of the investigation

At the time of Mr. Slimmon’s withdrawal from industry, a disciplinary hearing was complete and Mr. Slimmon was awaiting a decision as to sanctions and costs of the Hearing Panel.

The Real Estate Council of Alberta approved Mr. Slimmon’s application to withdraw, and this results in a voluntary lifetime prohibition from industry membership; conduct proceedings are now discontinued.

The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) is an independent, non-government agency, responsible for governing real estate, mortgage broker, property management, and real estate appraisal industry professionals under Alberta’s Real Estate Act. RECA’s mandate is to protect consumers and to provide services that enhance and improve the industry and the business of industry professionals
