Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.She cannot legally sell it here, as there has been no probate.If she h as it listed contact the realtor telling realtor you have an interest and that you have not agreed to a sale here unless you are paid your legal share.This puts realtor on notice and they will have to either involve you or take it off the market.The wife here cannot sell this here she is not authorized as an executor or administrator.Write the realtor or email them and put them on notice.I might consider doing both.
The realtor has to resolve this or there is no closing.In fact you can argue that there is no valid listing agreement here either.That should protect your rights here, unless probate is filed this isn't going anywhere.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.
You can also file a realtor complaint.
Thanks again and the best to you.
