Afterwards, she says, more than $162,000 worth of her jewelry was gone.

It was stolen, she says, during the showing.

At the time, she says, the realty company had sole control over the home, and her lawsuit alleges negligence and carelessness.

She’s asking for unspecified damages.

There was no immediate comment from the real estate company.
