Gerard Baden-Clay's real estate operation all but grinds to a halt seven weeks since Allison Baden-Clay was murdered
(0:27 / 2.5MB)
BUSINESS within the real estate operation owned by the husband of murdered mum Allison Baden-Clay has all but ground to a halt in the seven weeks since his wife went missing.
There are no new house listings on his website or realestate.com and industry experts say they don't know how his Century 21 Westside franchise will survive.
Mr Baden-Clay told The Courier-Mail it was "business as usual" after relocating from Taringa to Toowong last week and a staff member confirmed yesterday that was still the case.
"We're all still working," the receptionist told The Courier-Mail yesterday morning. "It is still business as usual."
Police are yet to reveal a cause of death because it would hamper the investigation, but they believe Mrs Baden-Clay knew her killer.There are only two houses listed for sale on the Century 21 Westside website, but it's understood they were sold before his 43-year-old wife's body was found at Kholo Creek, Anstead, in Brisbane's west, on April 30.
