High profile Darwin real estate agent Karl Secondis has had his bail conditions varied as his legal team remains optimistic a drug charge he is facing will be resolved summarily.

In a statement, NT Police Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Matt Akers said a 47-year-old man was arrested in his The Gardens home on Monday, and charged with possessing a commercial quantity of cocaine but did not say how much of the drug the man allegedly had.

Under the Misuse of Drugs Act a commercial quantity of cocaine starts at 40 grams, while a traffickable amount begins at 2 grams.

The NT Independent has confirmed the man arrested was the well known agent, and former hair dresser, Mr Secondis, and that he was allegedly caught in possession of the drug. He did not respond to a request for comment.

On his Linkedin profile, Mr Secondis says he has been a salesperson at Ray White Darwin since January.
