Bobby Chinn – Real Estate Licence Cancelled

Calgary, Alberta – On July 22, 2015, a Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) Appeal Panel ordered that Bobby Chinn’s authorization to trade in real estate be cancelled and prohibited Mr. Chinn from applying for a new authorization until February 8, 2016. The Appeal Panel also ordered Mr. Chinn to pay costs of $2,500.

The Appeal Panel determined the Hearing Panel’s earlier decision did not meet the reasonableness standard of review. The Appeal Panel found that Mr. Chinn engaged in conduct that undermines public confidence in the industry, harms the integrity of the industry or brings the industry into disrepute.
