Protocol for Overlapping Showings?

Protocol for Overlapping Showings?
What is the recommended protocol when another agent shows up at a showing while you are still there with your client? Should I verify that the agent has the required access information (lockbox number)? This has happened to me twice now and the agents just walked in, even when they could see I was there with a client.

When it is me, I choose to wait for the first agent to leave and lock up. What is considered professional?

RE: Protocol for Overlapping Showings?
It never occurred to me to verify another agent's information if they showed up while I was showing a house... I personally wouldn't worry about it, but it is a good question.

This rarely happened to me, but whenever I arrived at a showing and there was one going on, I'd offer to leave and come back in a little while. If someone else walked in on me, and insisted on staying, oh well. Just make the best of it...
