(c) Notwithstanding any other provisions of law to the contrary, the commission may issue a cease and desist order prohibiting any person from violating the provisions of this chapter by engaging in the practice of a real estate broker without a license. Such cease and desist order shall be final ten days after it is issued unless the person to whom such order is issued requests a hearing before the commission.

(d) The violation of any cease and desist order of the commission under subsection (c) of this Code section shall subject the person violating the order to further proceedings before the commission, and the commission shall be authorized to impose a fine not to exceed $1,000.00 for each transaction constituting a violation of such order. Each day that a person practices in violation of this chapter shall constitute a separate violation.

(e) Initial judicial review of the decision of the commission entered pursuant to this Code section or an action for enforcement of such decision shall be available solely in the superior court of the county of domicile of the commission.

(f) Nothing in this Code section shall be construed to prohibit the commission from seeking remedies otherwise available by statute without first seeking a cease and desist order in accordance with the provisions of this Code section.
