RECO issues Public Advisory regarding Sutton Group Central Realty Inc.

On December 29, 2017, under the authority of the Real Estate Business Brokers Act 2002 (REBBA), the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) issued a Freeze Order, freezing bank accounts of:

Sutton Group Central Realty Inc., formerly of 60 Gillingham Drive, Suite 400 Brampton, ON
L6X 0Z9.

Freeze Orders are invoked by RECO against brokerages when required to prevent funds from being withdrawn from a brokerage’s accounts in order to protect consumer deposits.  Because Sutton Group Central Realty Inc. has no Broker of Record, RECO has taken steps to preserve the funds in the brokerage’s bank accounts. The matter is being investigated and additional action may be taken. Any new information will be made available on RECO’s website.
