A high -rofile real estate agent known for selling million dollar mansions has allegedly been caught stealing open house signs from his competitors.
Daniel Gonzalez, who owns Realty Lane, has been charged with two counts of stealing the signs in Perth suburbs Sorrento and in North Beach, during February and May.
The 41-year-old is well known in the real estate industry and was awarded for the highest value of property sold in 2018 after selling 119 properties worth $132million.
He had spent the last decade as a professional drummer for the band Tijuana Cartel before starting up Realty Lane in January, 2017.
The company was initially a one man show and ran without a shop front for nine months.
Gonzalez had no experience in real estate before starting his own business which now sells multi-million dollar beachfront homes.
The self-confessed ‘rockstar to million dollar real estate agent’ was ranked first in Western Australia for real estate last year.
He will now face Perth Magistrate’s Court on June 11, the West Australian reported.
Last year, Gonzalez told Domain he was ‘obsessed’ with success.
‘I am obsessed in achieving the best outcome for our clients every time,’ he said.
‘The responsibility of representing them is not something I take for granted and feel honoured to be chosen.’
