Publication of Ms Azimi's charges and suspension had already caused her shame, embarrassment and anxiety, Mr Hislop said Real Estate Agents Disciplinary Tribunal chairman Judge Paul Barber said Ms Azimi's offending was concerning and at a serious level "We consider that the type of dishonesty displayed by the defendant must bar her from any future role as a real estate salesperson "The public must be protected from the activities with which the defendant became involved." As a result, Judge Barber ordered Ms Azimi's licence be cancelled and that she be fined $5000 She could not be reached for comment Barfoot & Thompson managing director Peter Thompson said there was a spate of mortgage ramping offending five years ago, but it was now far less prevalent He said he was happy with the tribunal's decision "We certainly don't want to see that type of person involved in real estate."
