What does this mean?
I will make a long story very short. Our house is on the market. Our realtor asked that anytime an agent shows the house that we should go outside and take a walk during the showing. We were robbed during one of these showings. I didn't discover it for a day as only jewelry was taken and it wasn't until I went to get a piece to wear to church that I discovered it. We are in a gated community and our house is fully alarmed and monitored when we are not at home. I wore a piece of the jewelry on Friday. This realtor was here on Saturday and it was discovered Sunday morning. A police report has been filed. When our agent took our listing she made a very strong point of saying that we needn't worry about agents showing the house as all agents are licensed and insured. Just exactly what does that mean? Does our realtor or the realtor who showed the house have any obligation? I am not asking for sympathy and I have already beat myself up for not hiding my pieces. Most of the things were put into a lock box before the house went on the market but I did leave some pieces out to use. BIG lesson learned! We asked our agent this question and she said she would have to check with her company and get back to us. I realize this may be different in each state. We live in Arizona.
