No Way Patti Should Have Profited on Rezko Sale, Says Realtor





    Realtor Mary Ann Piazzi testified that she was the exclusive realtor for the sale of a Tony Rezko condo property at 1069 W. Chestnut Ave., a development called St. John's Park. She said the buyers had a realtor as well, and that both she and that realtor earned a 2.5% commission. She said no one else should have been paid.

    Previous testimony has shown that Tony Rezko paid Patti Blagojevich a $14,369 commission for the project, even though she did no apparent work on the sale.

    Piazzi said she never met Patti Blagojevich, and in fact never heard of her company.
