July 17, 2019 – Robert Mraz: Lifetime Withdrawal from Industry

Calgary, Alberta – On July 17, 2019, Robert Mraz, previously a mortgage associate in Lethbridge, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.

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

  • acted in conflict of interest
  • adequately carried out his responsibilities as a delegate broker including ensuring there was a written service agreement and a written disclosure of the steps taken to verify financial assets
  • attempted to delegate supervision duties without authority and without communication
  • made representations to a lender that were reckless and likely to mislead the lender without verifying the information

At the time of Mr. Mraz’s withdrawal from industry, the investigation was not complete and there had been no disciplinary hearing, admissions, or findings of fact.

The Real Estate Council of Alberta approved Mr. Mraz’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.
