The big problem I see right away is liability. I've seen a few situations where someone gets hurt on the property and they claim the property was abandoned and improperly maintained by the owner.
Because of this somebody "claims" they were hurt and the owner "you" was negligent (sp?).
BTW, Get a new Realtor if you cannot get a response in 24 hours.
I would love to take a look at the situation and see if I can help. I am an expreienced short sale broker with access to several contractor/buyers. Please just give me a call or shoot me an email and I'll run by the property and look into the issue. Based on the zip code your property should be very close to me.

Bottom line - no real estate agent or broker can answer this question. If you need a few names of experienced real estate attorneys, a real estate agent is a great resource for that!
Sorry about your negative experience - I hope you get it resolved and protect yourself as soon as possible!
Thanks and take care,

It sounds as though communication has broken down between yourself and your Realtor as well as with your lender. I'm very sorry to hear that. Perhaps the lender hired an asset management company to secure the property; they typically do this if a home is found vacant and they can't contact the Realtor. Depending on where you are in the process of forecloure there could still be time to correct the situation. I am local to the 34205 zip code and am an experienced short sale agent. I would be happy to look at the particulars and help any way possible. It is certainly in your best interest to complete a short sale rather than foreclosure.
Please contact me so that I can help!

Something that should not have happened if it was properly cared for.
Did you have a Property Management Contract with the Agent?
Did they have Insurance?
Your Homeowners insurance may take care of it, IF
Your Homeowners is still in force,
Your homeowners allows for it to be Vacant
Lots of questions, lots of possibilities
Good luck and may God bless
