Wagner’s license wasn’t yet official
Rape suspect Brad Wagner did not hold a real estate license with RE/MAX Mountain West in Glenwood Springs at the time of his arrest.Although Wagner, a Glenwood Springs resident, began work with the agency on June 3, the Colorado Real Estate Commission had not transferred his real estate license from his previous position, said Michael R. Kennedy, broker and owner of RE/MAX Mountain West. Wagner spent his first week orienting himself to the company, although he did see a few clients at his Glenwood home office. “Certainly, it’s a disappointment to our company and real estate business as well as the Glenwood Springs community,” Kennedy said.Wagner held a real estate license with his previous employer, Coldwell Banker Commercial Resort Investment Partners in Aspen. His license expires Dec. 31, 2005, and is listed as active on the Colorado Division of Financial Services Department of Regulatory Agencies database.On June 11, Boulder police arrested Wagner at his home in Glenwood Springs on four counts of first-degree sexual assault for rapes that occurred in the mid-1990s in Boulder. Wagner is at the Boulder County Jail on $1 million bond, and he will be formally charged at 2 p.m. today at the jail.In addition to snowboarding, Wagner was also involved in other activities in the valley, including attending spiritual and metaphysical classes. Snowmass Village resident Susan Saghatoleslami said she met Wagner at a class last winter, near the end of the ski season. She found out he was a part-time snowboard instructor at Snowmass, where she has also instructed, Saghatoleslami said.”Everybody’s innocent until proven guilty. From meeting him I would have never thought anything like that – he seemed like a pretty nice person,” Saghatoleslami said.
