Samuel Leccima of ATL Season 2 Cast – Real Estate License RevokedPosted: August 10, 2006
Samuel P. Leccima of the Atlanta-Based Season 2 cast of “Flip This House” had his Real Estate License revoked on September 26, 2005 according to page 18 of the Georgia Real Estate Commission’s list of sanctions since July 1, 2001.
I contacted the Commission to request a copy of the public file only to discover that the file is not available. Once I am able to get the documents that indicate the offense that caused his license to be revoked, I will post them here. Additionally, I will contact Mr. Leccima so that he may respond with his explanation of the situation.
During my conversation I learned that a New York-based producer from A&E had also contacted the Commission earlier in the week.
The State of Georgia statute 43-40-25 indicates that a revocation will occur only in extreme circumstances:
(a) … whenever a license, a school approval, or an instructor approval has been obtained by
false or fraudulent representation; or whenever a licensee, an approved school, or an approved instructor has been found guilty of a violation of this chapter, or of the rules and regulations promulgated by the commission, or of any unfair trade practices, including, but not limited to those listed in this Code section; the commission shall have the power to take any one or more of the following actions:
… (4) Revoke any license or approval;
Edit: We have since obtained Sam Leccima’s Real Estate License revocation documents. You can read the decision that resulted in the license revocation. Finally, Fox 5 Atlanta has recently run two segments focused on Mr. Leccima and his activities both on and off of the show.
