I am sure the label  "real estate agent" could easily be substituted with any number of occupations. The Beverly Hills location is certainly one that will draw some attention.  Sad.

Despicable and egregious behavior, especially when clients put their trust into someone who follows through with ill-gotten gain. Glad they both will pay - of course, it depends on the type of judge they go before.

We once had a local agent who previewed homes so that he could check the medicine cabinets for interesting prescription drugs.

Having a real estate sales license does not confer a mantel of wisdom, goodness and honesty on the holder.

A thief is a thief and the sad truth is many are vistimizing open houses to steal. Which is why many open houses have 2 or more agents. Also why some sellers dont want them as well as some agents are not having them any more.

There were 2 guys, looks like only one was a licensee. Looting was being done in order to pay credit cards.

This is what happens when you go into a business you can't afford without enough capitalization to run it.
