I wonder; when I give one of my houses to the real estate agent to rent, and when they rent and make the contract, for the new tenant, my name and signature should not be included too?
If you own the house of course you are landlord and should sign the lease and be named as such. The question is why you are using a realtor to do leases, a legal contract, for your business of renting property (which is not a hobby) and not a lawyer.

The real question here is why don't you have a LAWYER? Yikes
The "realtor" shouldn't be making ANY contracts, much less OMITTING you from them, that is a bit bizarre if you ask me. And I have nothing against realtors; I have been a broker (33 years) longer than I have been a lawyer (29); but this sound like something is very wrong, and the broker is making legal decisions - FOR you.
See a lawyer right away.
Hope this helps.
