There is a fiduciary responsibility for licensed salespersons and brokers to leave a property secure. In Atlanta we have electronic lockboxes (holds the house key) which give all the pertinent information about each showing
Who showed the house
What brokerage holds their license
Personal email address
Personal phone number
Date lockbox was opened

If I was the listing agent for your property, I would have called the last agent to show and then, barring a great explanation - like they are in the hospital with a medical emergency - I would call the broker holding the salesperson's license and ask why I should not contact the licensing complaint board.

The West Lafayette market is very strong this year.... more

You will want to know if there have been past insurance claims and what those insurance claims were for (ie water damage).... more
