I just listed my place on the market with a realtor.
I have a "broker opening" today from 11 am – 2 pm, which I guess is essentially brokers come over and offer the realtor advice on how the place could be improved or what the think of the pricing of the place, whatever.
He showed up at 8 am this morning. He called someones cell phone and rang the door bell and after not getting a response he used the realtor key to go inside. There were still people inside my house that hadn't left for the day, they didn't hear the doorbell, so he essentially walked in unannounced.
I heard about this, called him and told him that I would appreciate it next time if he would get our permission before going in our house. He said okay and I thought that was the end of it. He then e-mailed another member of my family and told them that we had signed a document that we didn't need any notice for people seeing our house. The e-mail was essentially him scolding me after I told him politely but firmly that I would like our permission before he goes over.
He told the other member of my family that it's essentially basic practice to phone and ring the door bell and just go inside if no one answers. My feeling is: unless you get explicit permission from the homeowner, you can't just assume that it is okay to enter our house.
Am I completely wrong here? I think I'm being reasonable, essentially since he showed up 3 hours before the time he said he would be there.
