I would not go in... you don't have permission to go in without the listing agent. I would, however, be mean enough to leave a note for the sellers saying sorry I couldn't show your home because your agent didn't find it important enough to show up to present the house.

I agree with Bob Crane  - but don't go in!

Guess these agents didn't need the commission after all - or are just plain well you know what they are!

I would not go in for all the reasons the others have mentioned.

When I get voice mail, I follow up with a text and/or email. If still no response, a call to the broker is in order. Sad to say, your situation is not unique...this seems to happen more and more frequently. Hope you were able to catch the LA and gain access.

I'm sure you have your answer (trespassing), but I would have rung the doorbell to see if someone was home, and I agree with Brandon Patton, I would have circled back after I called the Realtor for the 43rd time to meet us there (or much better, the broker).

No; but this would give you another reason to call the listing agent to alert her that there is a problem at her listing. Bet she would call you back immediately.

If i had an appointment, and it was accompanied only, i would not check back doors and certainly would not enter. I may call their managing broker though or even leave a note at the home.

No way.  Call the broker request for them to show up! What if they didn't notify the homeowner and someone was there? They may have video and you could get into trouble.  I would be mad and explain to your client the need to reschedule.

Broker, Realtor and Investor not enter. Call them again. Most likely they are running behind schedule. Call the brokerage and see if they have a way to reach them.

I'd be hesitant on going in.  Could be seen as breaking and entering/trespass if the agent isn't there and there is no supra.  I know if I caught someone in my listing who didn't have permission they would be held at gunpoint, face down on the floor, until the cops arrived.

Absolutely not. You do not have the permission of the agent.  It would be trespassing and could lead to a myriad of problems.

Leave a message for the broker regarding a security issue. It is amazing how many sliders can not be locked closed.

Then I would send the BROKER a bill for $250 for failure to notify within 30 minutes of appointment, the listing agent(s) were unable to make appointment.

Of course you can not collect but you can make reference to, the list of those who do not pay their bills. (no such website exists...yet)

Of couse, buyers agents need to know they also must manage their buyers and keep appointments or they too can wear the badge of 'DeadBeatAgent."

I would not enter, but I would continue to try to get the agent, assistant and when that fails, the office broker. There may be a problem or situation at the house that needs to be investigated. Interestingly most of the responses assume negative things about the listing agent, couldn't it just as likely be something happened to him/her?

You should not enter the property if not authorized. If fact, you should not be walking around the house.

Million plus dollar home is, unfortunately, not all that unique here in Northern fact,  it's probably only a 1300 square foot rancher on 5,000 SF of land. In my case, I'd go in and leave the client outside to see if the agent is inside and perhaps locked in the bathroom, fallen and can't get up, or become prey to a particularly vicious house plant.  If I can't find the agent inside and with the requirement of "agent accompany" I would lock it up, call the brokerage later to find out what happened and reschedule IF my client still wants to see it.

I will always resecure the property for the listing agent and make sure the property was unoccupied before I did lock up.  I would also notify the agent what I found and what I did so they know.

Client stays outside, however.
