Unauthorized entry into a home for sale was a message I received yesterday from an agent at another company. He had reported the incident to the Department of Real Estate but they said this was not something they governed.
The listing had MLS instructions to call for an appointment. There was a Metrolist lockbox on the property. The MLS instructions contain the parameters of how agents can enter. To enter any other way is an ethics violation and this agent can be subject to a complaint filed at our local Sacramento Associations of Realtors board. This was the instruction I gave the complainant.
