The risk that Listing agent is taking is huge! Purchasing a home is done on a "legal contract" to protect all parties involved in the transaction. Verbal offers are unethical and do not constitute an "offer" to purchase until all parties have signed the contract.
The listing agent also has a "fiduciary" duty to protect their seller in all transactions. It puts their client at great risk to be accepting any offers without the legal contract.
I'm sure you're agent will know what and where to take this complaint. Mostly to their local Association of Realtors and the State Association of Realtors. In California, we report a "violation" through our associations and they follow-up with that particular agent.
Best of luck!
