Robert Ackerman - Lifetime Withdrawal from Industry
Calgary, Alberta – On January 22, 2014, Robert Ackerman, previously a real estate associate broker in Lethbridge, applied to permanently withdraw from industry membership.
At the time of his application, Mr. Ackerman was the subject of conduct proceedings to determine whether he:
- Traded in real estate as a real estate broker without the appropriate authorization; and,
- Did not disclose to his client any conflict of interest he may have had in the course of providing services to or in his dealings with them.
At the time of the withdrawal application approval, there had been no disciplinary hearing, admissions of conduct or findings of fact. The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) approved Mr. Ackerman’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, and real estate appraisal industry professionals under Alberta’s Real Estate Act. RECA is mandated to protect consumers and to provide services that enhance and improve the industry and the business of industry professionals.
