I'd feel pretty bad, but I'd also feel a bit foolish that I didn't take down signs on listings that weren't mine any more.

Sounds like you really need to have a talk with your Designated or Managing Broker and get some direct answers, guidance and advice from him/her.

As an REO agent, I have never thrown away a sign or any physical marketing signs of another agent.  These items cost us all money!

Sometimes the agent is never aware that there was a sign because the some lenders hire contractors to change locks and clean out the properties before the agent even receives the assigned property.

I hope this helps!

Did you ask the agent if they actually threw out your sign?  Perhaps they took it back to the office for safe keeping.

Many times when we pick up expired listings the old sign is there.  Agents tend to try and get the most mileage out of the sign whether the listing is active or not.

We usually call the other agent and let them know we have taken over the listing so they can remove their sign.

I would be upset, but an REO agent doesn't normally just take over right away. A home that has been foreclosed on typically takes a little while to get into the hands of an REO agent. I would normally have had time to go and take my signs down. As soon as the property is foreclosed on or taken off of the market the sign should come down.
