Others present: Bill Schroeder and via telephone ALJ Margaret LaMarche

The meeting was called to order by Miller at 11:05 a.m.

Hughes moved, seconded by Rank that the Commission enter into closed session pursuant to Iowa Code section 21.5(1)(d)(f) to review proposed Final Decisions for Cases 01-060 and 01-034. Roll call vote as follows: Rank, aye; Leestamper, aye, Hughes, aye, Woline, aye and Miller, aye. Motion carried. The closed session was tape recorded and minutes were recorded. The Commission entered into closed session at 11:08 a.m.

At 11:27 am the Commission returned to Open Session. Hughes moved, second Rank to approve the draft decision for Case 01-060 Barbara J. Newquist. Ms. Newquist Real Estate Broker license immediately REVOKED, she shall pay a civil penalty of $1000, within thirty days of receipt of this decision. It is further ordered that Ms. Newquist shall immediately pay the full amount of restitution ordered by the Polk County District Court. The Respondent shall pay $75, within thirty days of receipt of this decision for fees associated with conducting the hearing. The current membership of the Commission unanimously agrees that the nature of the Respondent's felony theft conviction disqualifies her from ever holding a Real Estate license in the state of Iowa. However, if a future Commission considers reinstatement of her license, it is strongly recommended that the Respondent be required to repeat all of the education, experience and examinations required for licensure prior to reinstatement. Motion carried.

Rank moved, second Leestamper to approve the draft decision for Case 01-034 Gregory O. Franich. The Commission permanently prohibits the Respondent from offering his Iowa Real Estate clients reduced interest rate mortgages conditioned upon the clients using his services as a Real Estate Broker. The Commission further ordered Mr. Franich to pay $75, within thirty days of receipt of this decision, for fees associated with conducting the hearing. Motion carried.

Staff was directed to have the Final Decisions signed by the Commission Chair and sent to the Respondents as soon as possible.

Leestamper moved, second Rank to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 11:35 am.
