Real estate agents are supposed to give homeowners the best bang for their buck. But a Coldwell Banker duo in New Jersey is being sued by two homeowners for allegedly using their house to engage in sexual trysts.

Homeowners Richard and Sandra Weiner alleged that agents Robert Lindsay and Jeannemarie Phelan used their Wayne, N.J., home for a minimum of 10 racy meetings, according to a lawsuit filed in Passaic County court.

“The security cameras further show that at 1:02 p.m., Lindsay and Phelan entered the master bedroom, undressed and proceeded to have sex on the Weiners’ bed,” the lawsuit, seen by the Record, states. “All visits were for sexual encounters.”

The Weiners also said in the suit that Lindsay “intentionally listed the house above market value to avoid Realtor traffic in the home while he and Phelan carried on their trysts.”

They are seeking damages for invasion of privacy, emotional distress, breach of contract, trespass of land and other civil counts, according to the newspaper.

Coldwell Banker fired the two agents after learning about the allegations, an executive for the brokerage told NorthJersey.

Earlier this month, an agent at boutique Williamsburg firm Nooklyn was fired for uploading nude photos of herself to company servers. [Record]Hiten Samtani
