SUMMARY

A discipline committee of the Real Estate Council of British Columbia (the “Council”) accepted the Consent Order Proposal submitted by Amir Soltani, and found that Mr. Soltani committed professional misconduct when he:

  4. failed to promptly provide to his managing broker the original or a copy of the trading records;

  6. failed to act honestly and with reasonable care and skill, when he assisted the Buyer to dispose of the Unit, in the course of a divorce, without any reasonable inquiry about the spouse’s interest, if any, in the Unit.

  1. a reprimand;
  2. a discipline penalty of $6,000;
