Q. The home next door is a rental owned by another realtor. Home is currently vacant but he insists of leaving the backporch light which shines directly into my master bedroom leaving me unable to enjoy my property. What remedy do I have?

Have you tried contacting the owner/realtor of the home next door?  I would think it was left on for security purposes. He prob isn't even aware of the issue it is causing you.  I would try that route first, its amazing the things you can get done just by asking.

He sent someone out with a key last night and they turned ichthyologist off. Yippee
