Surveillance video shows realtors having sex in clients’ house for sale?
Two Coldwell Banker realtors were hired to sell a couple’s home for $650,000. But instead of bringing in potential buyers, they allegedly turn their clients’ house into a ‘play pad’, having sex at least 10 times, including in the master bedroom, according to a lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey.
As they allegedly go wild having their secret sex trysts, realtors Robert Lindsay and Jeannemarie Phelan have no idea the entire house is covered in secret surveillance cameras capturing their every move.
Not only are the homeowners, Richard and Sandra Weiner, suing Lindsay and Phelan for damages, but the Weiners are so angry they also released the alleged sex surveillance video, which Nancy Grace has obtained from Inside Edition. Richard Weiner tells Inside Edition, “They were using our home as a cheap motel.”
From trusted realtor to wild ‘sexual escapades’
Back in 2010, the Weiners begin working with Robert Lindsay to find a new home. Lindsay is a well-respected realtor with 35 years of experience, promoted as one of the best Coldwell realtors in the area and one-time President of the Passaic County Board of Realtors. So the Weiners decide to have Linsday also sell their existing home in Wayne, New Jersey.
By December 2011, they enter a contract with Lindsay to sell the home and are advised to remodel it and move out. That’s when the kinky trysts begin, according to the lawsuit.
From December 27, 2011 to January 23, 2012, security cameras allegedly capture Lindsay and fellow realtor Jeannemarie Phelan 10 different times having sex all over the house. Kissing and hugging in the kitchen, undressing and having sex on the master bed.
The alleged raunchy realtors are caught when Sandra Weiner checks the home video feed and sees strange people in the house with flashlights. Thinking burglars are in the home, Weiner calls the police and cops arrive to find Lindsay pulling up his pants, claiming he’s there to make preparations for an open house, according to the Weiners’ lawsuit.
The realtors allegedly gained access to the home by making copies of the keys, unauthorized by the Weiners.
Richard and Sandra Weiner could not figure out why their house continues to just sit on the market. Their Wayne, New Jersey home was listed at $650,000, an amount Lindsay advises it will easily sell for, according to court documents. But no one is putting in offers to buy the home. The lawsuit alleges Lindsay intentionally lists the house above market value to keep potential buyers away, leaving the home wide open for more "sexual escapades" with Phelan. The Weiners become “uncomfortable” and “disgusted” being in the home, desperate to get it off the market.
Lindsay and Phelan were fired by Coldwell Banker.
A statement from Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in New Jersey says, “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 conduct 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."
The lawsuit, seeking compensatory damages, is claiming breach of contract, emotional distress, negligence, trespassing and invasion of privacy.
Lindsay and Phelan have reportedly filed a $1 million counterclaim, alleging the Weiners tried to blackmail them with the secret sex video. The Weiners reportedly deny the allegations.
Calls from the Nancy Grace show have not been returned.
