Also did you not sign escrow papers? That would have been a good indication that you should have been looking to move.
As stated below, you can sue for anything BUT you can also be sued as well. Make sure you get more details about how you feel your agent was liable before exposing yourself to a legal action as well for defamation.
Please elaborate on what items you took for a better explanation as to what maybe you could have done to avoid the situation
Congratulations on a successful short sale though, it seems your agent performed the task you hired them for.

Your Realtor may indeed have some liability here BUT ...did you have a copy of your purchase contract??? If so, you knew what the time frames were. Did you have a copy of the escrow docs? If so, you knew when escrow was to close.
The purchase contract also indicates what personal property has been agreed upon for the taking.
So...if you did not receive these documents - there is a problem with your Agent/Escrow, etc...If you DID receive these documents and did not read them - then you have to take responsibility here.
I've often been amazed at how few consumers actually read the real estate contracts - and if you didn't you have no one to blame but yourself. You are held legally responsible once you sign those documents.
It sounds like you've been through a lot and I wish you well.
