Regret to hear you ran into this predicament. Now the right thing to do
will be that you call your agent on his cell and confirm that such a buyer was sent by him / her
and going forward your agent gives you a heads up.
This then helps as it is verified by your agent and it puts you at ease.
Lawyers can show properties.
You are paying a goodly sum to be represented by your broker and it is his or her job (and fiduciary duty) to represent you. You should expect that your home will be protected and safeguarded by realtors who have a duty to ensure that buyers who enter your home are both qualified and known!
Realtors are employees of the seller (or the buyer if buyer's agents)- as members of the MLS one of our greatest differentiators is our customer service and quality of service (both in marketing your home and in being responsive to you). You might want to remember that we are also able to be fired if we don't perform adequately.
Good luck in selling your home!

Sounds like you and your agent are not on the same page, invite them over, have them explain again how it works, but do it in a positive manner. Work together not against each other. Good luck,

Financing Kentucky One Home at a Time
I answer questions about financing real estate based on my decades of experience dealing with mortgage underwriters. This answer is my personal opinion, has not been reviewed or approved by the company I work for. I do not offer legal or tax advice, if you need answers from an attorney or CPA find one knowledgeable in your local market.
If your agent vetted these buyers and they told the agent they were represented by an attorney, then I wouldn't say it's inappropriate.
However, it's your home and you have every right to deny them if you are not fully comfortable or if they misled your agent and brought unlicensed representation.
This sounds like something you should discuss with your Realtor until you get an answer that is satisfactory.
Insist that they are accompanied by an agent (I presume you meant a unrepresented buyer, not an unsupervised one)... OR make sure that your agent accompanies the showing.
