A judge with the State Office of Administration rescheduled a hearing for a former broker and agent for Re/Max Platinum in Copperas Cove.
Tuesday’s hearing was rescheduled for July 23.
The change in hearing date was made at the request of the Texas Real Estate Commission, which filed its original complaint with the state office earlier this year seeking to suspend Gilbert Quinones’ broker’s license and Susan Quinones’ saleswoman’s license. It also requested a $19,000 administrative penalty be issued against both Quinoneses.
According to court documents, the commission received numerous complaints before filing its original motion.
In asking for a continuance, the commission listed multiple reasons to include additional cases.
“Petitioner asks that the hearing set for April 29, 2014, be rescheduled in order to consolidate multiple new cases currently under investigation,” stated the continuance, filed April 22 and accepted April 23 by Judge Gary W. Elkjns. “Petitioner anticipates that these investigations will be completed in the next three weeks.”
The original petition included allegations of failing to pay rent to property owners in a reasonable amount of time and failing or refusing to produce records to the commission. Several of the counts were reported between August and January.
The Quinoneses’ real estate licenses were temporarily suspended by the commission, according to its website.
Susan Quinones is temporarily barred from practicing real estate because she failed to produce evidence as part of the agreement with the commission, the website stated. No reason was given on the commission’s website for Gilbert Quinones’ suspension.
