January 22, 2020 – Barry Coggins: Lifetime Withdrawal from Industry

Calgary, Alberta – On January 22, 2020, Barry Coggins, previously a real estate broker in Linden, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.

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

  • failed to fulfil fiduciary obligations and make full disclosure of conflicts of interest to clients
  • failed to offer a transaction brokerage agreement where required
  • failed to exercise reasonable care and skill in the performance of the exclusive listing contract; and
  • traded in real estate without proper authorization

At the time of Mr. Coggins’ 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. Coggins application to withdraw, and this results in a voluntary lifetime prohibition from industry membership; conduct proceedings are now discontinued.
