If the Realtor will not present the offer, take it directly to the Seller, based upon advice and counsel from your Real Estate Attorney.
See an Attorney for Legal Advice.
I agree with everyone else. There must be some reason why the agent does not want to present your offer. Maybe the seller will not agree to dual agency? Surprising because most times the seller will have a variable rate listing agreement in which it might be a win-win for both of you. Like someone had asked before; have you been pre-approved? Why type of financing are you looking at doing, FHA, DVA, Conventional? Is there enough earnest money? Is this a contract for deed?
The asking price is one piece of the offer, but maybe there are variables that are hindering it. If you have more questions please let me know.
Hmmm sounds strange, the sellers agent does not want to sell the house. Did the agent tell you why?
Regardless of the requirements placed on the realtor by the code of ethics, you should find another realtor who will write the offer for you. If you would like some help feel free to contact me via my profile. I would be happy to talk things through with you and write up any and all offers for you.

PS Just to make it clear to you - if the seller's agent brings in your offer, the agent is working as a "dual agent".....that might be the reason the agent doesn't want to represent you. Not all agents will work in that capacity, and it may not be allowed in your area. . If that's the case, then you will need to find a different agent who can represent you as a "buyer's agent". This should have been explained to you by the agent.
Ask for further clarification.
Hope this helps!
There has to be more to the story, as it doesn't make any sense that an agent would refuse to present a full asking price offer to a seller.......Unless..................
1. Does the agent not want to be involved in dual agency? (ask the agent to explain this to you)
2. Has the agent suggested you find a buyer's agent to represent you?
3. What is the reason the agent has given for refusing to take your offer?
I'd be happy to comment further, but I'd need more of an explanation, so I can understand what is going on.
In NJ, we are required (legally) to present all written offers, and we are comfortable with dual agency. Perhaps this is not the case where you are.
If you are having an issue with this agent, you can always speak to the Manager/Broker for assistance, or to refer you to another agent.
