I am not an attorney and this response should not be considered legal advice.
As was stated in another answer anyone can request anything. That said, KY state law requires any offer be presented to the seller without delay. So the listing agent's first response to receiving an offer should be to present the offer to his/her seller. For a listing agent to commit to notifying other agents in the event of receiving offers is at the very least risky on the agent's part. If you are the buyer, make the offer. If you aren't sure it is THE ONE, make the offer such at a price or on terms that would make it a no-brainer.
Hope that helps.

Your question is a bit confusing , if you want to know if a buyers agent can ask a listing agent to notify you if any offers come in on a property his clients have a slight interest in while they look at others most listing agents would be open to that as long as it is okay with the sellers.
It would be in the seller's best interest if their agent called all buyer's agents' parties that had some interest in the home to let them know they were getting an offer. It would possibly create a multiple offer situation, resulting in a bidding situation for a higher sales price.
However, the buyer's that wanted to keep looking for the perfect house stand an increased chance of losing the home they liked because they now have to compete with other buyers. So their chance of getting it for any kind of discount is pretty much gone.

Real estate is not for the timid or weak, you have to close the deal when the opportunity strikes or you miss out big time.
Yes, such a request can be made -- and frequently is. Very important for Buyers and for Buyers' agents to understand, though, is that a request from one agent to another is just that -- a request, with zero legal weight, nor the assurance that such notice will occur. If you are the Buyer, you will want to ask your agent to be proactive by staying in regular contact with the listing agent in such a case. Ultimately, really, the only assurance that a Buyer will have an opportunity to pursue a particular home is to prepare and submit an offer BEFORE a competing buyer pops into the picture -- which can happen at any moment. We hope this helps you. Best wishes in your real estate endeavors...

Realtor B can tell Realtor A that his clients have some interest, and to please keep us in the loop, in case you get any other interest or offers.
Realtor B is by no means obligated to do so, but it may be in his clients best interests to make sure that everyone interested in the property knows what's going on.
I understand the question but I am not sure I understand the point.
Buyer's agent can ask. Listing agent should follow the instructions of the sellers and the buyers should just make an offer if they are interested. Usually, if buyers make an offer or are indicating that they might, the listing agent is happy to tell them that there are other offers on the table because it makes it a competitive situation.
