A man who filed a lawsuit against two realtors he caught having sex in a home he was trying to sell has released video footage of the realtors in the act.
Richard Weiner was looking to sell his New Jersey home in 2011 and turned to Coldwell Banker real estate agent Robert Lindsay for help.
Lindsay priced the house to sell at $525,000 and, with everything settled, Weiner and his wife moved out of the home, but not before installing security cameras, according to Inside Edition.
One evening, while in their new home, Weiner’s wife checked the security camera and saw someone moving around in her home. She told Weiner that the house was being broken into. The police were called and it was discovered the man moving around in the shadows was Robert Lindsay.
After the real estate agent gave the police a paper-thin excuse, Richard Weiner went back over the security footage and what he found stunned him.
Lindsay and a blonde woman, later identified as fellow real estate agent Jeannemarie Phelan, were discovered entering the home multiple times, morning, noon, and night, and having sex.
The pair even noticed the cameras, but continued to romp about in Weiner’s home.
According to The Daily Mail, Weiner believes Lindsay made a duplicate key and over-priced the home to discourage buyers, while it was on the market.
Lindsay and Phelan were fired from their jobs.
Weiner sued in December for compensatory damage for invasion of privacy, infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract, and trespass of land. Lindsay and Phelan have decided to countersue.
The realtor couple are seeking $1 million in damage and claim Weiner attempted to blackmail them into paying $900,000 to keep quiet about their relationship, as both were married to other people at the time.
Phelan, who was not selling the house, said she’d been invited into the home and thought she had permission to be there.
Coldwell Banker has done their best to distance themselves from the situation and the individuals involved in it.
“Immediately after learning of the allegation of improper behavior at the property by two independent contractors in January 2012, we ceased our affiliation with the agents. These agents have not listed or sold properties on our behalf since the allegation of misconduct at the home was first reported. The alleged misconduct at the home does not in any way represent how we conduct business as a company, and certainly is not reflective of the quality, commitment and integrity of our management or the more than 3,200 sales professionals affiliated with our company. We hold affiliated agents to the highest ethical standards,” Hal Maxwell, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage New Jersey, said in a statement to Inside Edition.
