My husband and sister work with me on my team. So, I would send one of them to the other closing. If I didn't have them to cover for me, I would ask another agent from my office if they would fill in.

William Piotrowski - attend the one where you are welcome. If both of them are equally good, ask one of them to reschedule.

Thought it is a good news in the beginning of the year that you have two closings in two different cities at the same time.

All the best for 2017.

Out here we don't have a closing table.  If I was the listing agent, I'd be going and removing my sign and hiding the key for the buyer's agent on my schedule (or having title send a runner to deliver it).  Most likely, I'd have the sign removed a day or three ahead of time and the key ready for pickup when it records.
