Realtor Involved in Sale of Faxon’s Barrington Home Charged with Larceny
The realtor involved in the sale of Brad Faxon’s Barrington Home has been charged with felony larceny.
Tracy LeRoux, the President of Link Real Estate, faces the charges after a complaint was filed by her real estate clients, the sellers of the home.
According to Rhode Island court records, the larceny took place on May 5, and Leroux was arraigned on June 1.
As GolfNewsRI reported about a month ago, Faxon’s Barrington home sold for more than $4.5 million.
According to Mott & Chace, it is the highest sale in Barrington since 2014.
“Situated on nearly four waterfront acres, the home was originally built by professional golfer Brad Faxon. The chateau-style home offers over 12,000 square feet and features seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and two half bathrooms,” said Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty in a press release.
Faxon currently lives in Florida where he is part of a team designing a new course at Jonathan’s Landing Golf Club in Jupiter.
Over the last two years, or so, Faxon has drawn the ire of Rhode Islanders after he, along with a group of investors, bought Metacomet Golf Club in East Providence with a promise to restore it.
After just one year of ownership, and seemingly not a ton of effort put in, the group flipped it for development to Marshall.
The Metacomet Club House was destroyed a few months ago.
