An eastern suburbs real estate agent has been jailed for two years for fraud after admitting to stealing almost half a million dollars worth of sales deposits from trust accounts.

Zacharis Gregory Imisides was sentenced in Parramatta Local Court earlier this month to two years imprisonment to be served by way of an intensive correction order, which will see him perform 400 hours of community service work and participate in a rehabilitation program.
