Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the agent was negligent in placing the sign and caused you damage, then you can indeed sue the agent for trespass and the damage their negligence caused you in the loss of a tenant. The agent is liable for their negligent conduct and trespass, you would have the burden of producing proof there was a tenant and they did choose not to rent when they saw the sign.
