It's funny, when agents act weird and something seems really wrong, I'll look them up and often find they have some kind of violation, suspension or their license has been restricted or previously revoked.

The only Broker/Agent I know who lost his license lost it because an unscrupulous family member had him deemed incompetent so he could steal his business and everything he owned (which he did). That Broker was 90 years old and sharp as a tack when it came to RE but his short term memory was pretty bad.

Two property managers who commingled funds. 

One real estate agent who lied about continuing education and got caught by the DBPR/Florida Real Estate Commission.

One real estate agent who did not report a criminal conviction to the DBPR.

I know a couple more, but can't think of the details.  Also, at least one of the people I mentioned above got a permanent revocation of license.

I know a few who are really good at walking that thin grey line between right and wrong.  I also know an agent (brought the buyer to her listing) that forged one of the owner's signatures, extorted money from my buyers and is being sued and will likely do time in the federal "grey bar motel" for it.

There are several in this area that have had license suspended or revoked. People can look them up on dpor website if they want. They use to mail out a newsletter with list of all agents that were suspended or revoked. A local loan officer embezzeled 14+ million from Wells Fargo and is getting close to getting out after serving 7 +- years in prison.

Ever quarter the commission sends out recently completed cases.  Only on a rare occasion is there one who loses their license for life.  Mainly do to messing around with funds or gross negligence when it comes to ethics, dual agencies, etc... Most get 6 months to 2 or 3 years suspension for the above along with lying on agent applications, controlled substance arrests, mishandling earnest money etc...  Our commission added fines a couple years ago as well, so many of the suspended licensees also pay a hefty fine.
