Basically, you're looking for a little peace of mind. Very understandable.

I'd recommend getting some of these cheap magnetic door/window alarms. They won't keep anybody out, but they make one heckuva lot of annoying noise if a door or window is opened.

Beyond that, if you're really terrified, get a gun.

or


you strategically lay out your fishing line trip wire attached to some homemade grenade you’ve concocted and set the device to trip when an intruder comes through your front door Just joking don't do that. It would be morally wrong

Or you could leave music playing all night so the bad Realtor knows you are still awake.

Try this song

Have you tought about just taking the key out of the lockbox at night when you sleep and putting it back in the morning so the realtor can use it?

Most lock boxes can only be opened by an agent with an electronic key. So that option will not work. It can be set for special showing times, like just during the day. Or just put some clothes on before coming out of the shower.

Where do you live that you worry that much about someone coming in at night? The only way a 'rouge' Realtor is going to come in is if they think your not home....make it obvious that your home....problem solved....if they do make it past the door, the handgrenade should take care of the problem.
