Please remember, when I am doing an open house, I will do everything I can to protect your home and your property EXCEPT put myself in danger. If, for example, these 2 men came into the open house, I would NOT ever go into the bedroom or upstairs or to the basement with them to be sure they weren’t taking your things. That would just be too dangerous. So be SURE that you remove your valuables or lock them up.
