A disgraced, unlicensed real estate agent helped sell an Auckland property to his aunt for less than half its market value, with it selling again the same day for a $525,000 profit.

In November 2016, the Real Estate Authority cancelled Aaron Drever’s real estate licencesaying he was “unable or unwilling” to change and “the public needs to [be] protected from him”.

It was Mr Drever’s ninth finding of misconduct and unsatisfactory conduct.

Five weeks later, he helped the Avondale Bowling Club – where he is a member and friend of president Arthur ‘Pat’ Bell – sell one of its bowling greens at 1797 Great North Road in Avondale Auckland.
