Do I need to answer a listing agent’s questions during the final walkthrough or at the closing?

Our closing is in about a couple of weeks and we have realized that our agent has miscommunicated what we want to the listing agent.

We had clearly told our agent that a few specific items, aka, junk, be removed from the basement and yards. It so turns out that our agent had miscommunicated to the listing agent a few additional items such as an old bathroom vanity and cabinets should also be removed. That is incorrect. I discovered this during a conversation with our agent and immediately told this person to make sure the other items are not removed. Too late. Our agent forwarded an email from the seller’s agent that whatever he had removed was based on our requests. That is a lie.

Our agent has goofed up. We have noticed this person is scatter-brained and yet because of a common acquaintance, we had gone ahead with her. It is too late to fire our agent. My SO is telling me those cabinets were old and we would have had to get rid of them anyway. I understand but what pisses me off is this was done without any explicit instructions from us.

The listing agent has emailed us directly, copying his attorney, that everything has been removed as per our requirements! We do not want to get into any dialog with him. We will meet this person during the final walkthrough and closing. If this person attempts to engage us in a debate, I am thinking of saying I prefer to have our attorney present and avoid any conversation.

Any advice?
