Milpitas Realtor® Convicted of Stealing One Man’s Identity to Purchase Home for Another

A real estate agent who worked for Century 21 Su Casa in San Jose is sitting in jail on a $1 million bail after a jury found her guilty of stealing the identity of one man to purchase a home for another.

Julissa Gill, 34, had been charged with eight felony counts of grand theft, forgery and identity theft and was prosecuted in Santa Clara County Superior Court in front of Judge Jacqueline Arroyo. The jury that convicted Gill found that in 2007 she had used the name, birth date and social security number of Jose Valdez, a San Leandro man, in order to complete the purchase of a home in San Jose for Eddy Niquen. Niquen, who ultimately lost the property to foreclosure, was apparently unaware of Gill’s manipulation of Valdez’ identity.

David Lim, a deputy district attorney with the Real Estate Fraud Unit from the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, was the prosecutor.

Julissa Gill’s license as a real estate salesperson shows no disciplinary action from the California Department of Real Estate as of the date of this post. However, the license of Century 21 Su Casa’s designated broker, Bic Pho, was revoked in 2011. See the earlier post about Bic Pho in the California Real Estate Fraud Report.
