A real estate agent has been picked to sell the multimillion-dollar mansion owned by missing Sydney fraudster Melissa Caddick.
The investment broker disappeared in November 2020, hours after the Australian Federal Police and Australian Securities and Investments Commission raided her Dover Heights home.
Three months later the 49-year-old’s decomposing foot, encased in a running shoe, washed up on a south coast beach.

She is believed to have used her company to conduct a Ponzi scheme and was facing a string of charges.
Jones Partners, the receivers of Caddick and liquidators of her company Maliver Pty Ltd, issued a statement on Thursday night saying it had appointed Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty to sell the property in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
“We are actively working towards having the Dover Heights property ready for sale in the vicinity of 5-6 weeks,” Jones Partners principal Bruce Gleeson said.
The house is being sold to compensate Caddick’s 74 victims, who lost a total of $23 million through her Ponzi scheme.
Gleeson said, “there continues to be very strong interest in this property”.
NSW Police have stated they believe Caddick is dead after her foot was found on Bournda Beach.
An inquest, which is set to probe the mysterious disappearance of Caddick, is scheduled for September.
