Yes, this is done all the time. It's just a matter of scheduling and availability of all parties involved.

I thank you for these question, and I love the Idea of the seller with sellers agent , takes appointment from buyers agent to make sure buyers agent presents it to the sellers personally ,I have been in these business long enough and seen many agents refusing to show the offer waiting for a double wammy.
and they make sure they are the ones that choozes who, will get the deal of course, needs to be a super qualified buyer,

I LOVE THE IDEA OF PRESENTING THE OFFER TO THE SELLERS MY SELF .TO MAKE IT FAIR AND PRESENT IT ,MY SELF AND KNOW THAT I DID THE JOB FOR MY BUYERS,
THE LAST OFFER HERE IN HAWAII I PRESENT IT THE OFFER TO THE SELLERS ACCOMPANIED OF COURSE BY THE SELLERS AGENT AND HE NEVER NEVER EXPERIENCE SHUCK A WONDERFUL THING ,THE SAID IT TOOK THE BERDEN OF HIS CONTIENCE AND HAD THE SELLER MAKE THE FINAL DESITION,

MY BUYERS WERE EXCITED ,THEY SAT IN MY CAR WHILE I WAS IN THE SELLERS AGENT OFFICE PRESENTING MY BUYERS OFFER AND MY BUYER KNEW NOW THAT I DO AND DID PRESENT HIS OFFER DIRECTLY AFTER THAT WAS THE SELLERS DESITION NOT THE SELLERS AGENTS DESITION.. MY CLIENT GOT THE HOUSE, AND IF VERY HAPPY IN THE HOUSE, AFTER HER WORKED WITH DOZENS OF AGENTS AND HIS OFFER WAS NEVER EXCEPTED, AND MY CLIENT ALSO ALWAYS SHARED THAT I BET MY OFFER IS NOT EVEN [PRESENTED, BY THE OTHER AGENTS ,
WOW WHAT A SMART BUYER, MY BUYER TOLD ME AFTER HIS OFFER WAS NEVER EXCEPTED HE AND HIS WIFE DROVE TO ALL THE SELLERS AND ASKED THEM IF THEY EVER SAW THERE OFFERS AND OUT OF 12 PROPERTIES THEY HAVE BEEN POORING OFFERS IN
AT LEAST 9 TOLD THE BUYERS NEVER SAW YOUR OFFER ,BECAUSE THE BUYER ALWAYS HANDED HIS AGENT WITH A LETTER FROM THEM WHY THEY LOVE THE HOUSE. AND THAT IS SOMETHING A SELLER WOULD OF REMEMBERED THAT LETTER,,,, MORE BUYER SHOULD DO THAT. AGENTS WOULD BE MORE APT TO BE HONEST. O
AND ITS A LOT OF RESPONSIBILITY TO PUT OF THE SELLERS AGENT. THRUTFULLY IF YOU LOOK IT ,WOULD YOU LIKE THE BUYERS AGENTS TELL THERE STORY ABOUT THERE BUYERS. JANINE HOL CENTURY 21 ALL ISLANDS IN OAHU 808-927-2030 MAHALO \

The best thing for you to do would be to talk to a Rental agent or Property management company. Hope this helps.

The seller does not have to do anything. But it would cover the broker in the event of a dispute. For instance, if there are multiple offers or if the buyer does not trust that the seller's agent is presenting the offer because that agent may have his or her own buyer. Of coures, that would be unethical. It is a good practice as a buyer's agent to request and also good practice for a listing agent to advise a seller to sign in case a dispute arises. ... more

A Realtors like that needs to be reported to the board of Realtors. I am so sorry this has happened, yes there are a few not ethical Realtor out there. However there are more Realtors who always do the right and ethical by their clients so please do not think that all Realtors are like the jerk that you had to deal with. And you should report this . The Real Estate business does not need anymore people who think things of this kind of nature is ok. ... more

Jim Simms answered:
I am not clear on a few points. Were you informed of an offer for your property verbally by your agent or did you make an offer on a property that was presented verbally? I have seen sellers not even make a counter offer on a ridiculous offer. The agent did not waste the time to meet with the seller, simply read the offer over the phone and asked the seller for their response. In my area a seller is not required to respond to anything other than a full price offer.

Fiduciary is a concept about acting on behalf of the client, so without knowing who was being represented it is not possible to answer this question. I agree with Terrence.

Marsha Mayer answered:
The other offer may be a cash offer with no contingencies...OR it may be more complicated...
Are you expecting to occupy the property as your primary home? Or are you buying as a 2nd home or investor? Fannie Mae will usually allow a certain number of days for future owner occupants to submit offers first, before they open it up to investors.

Ask the listing agent (through your Realtor if you have one or directly if you don't) to explain the guidelines in detail to you- for submitting offers. Good luck !

Sean LaSalle answered:
Michele,

If the agent communicated to you the counter offer and you did not accept it, then he most likely fulfilled his duties to you. If you did not respond in time because of the deadline and the agent did not tell you of the deadline, then he could have. If he did not even tell you what the counter was at all, then he absolutly did.
Your recourse would be to report your agent and the broker to the state real estate commission. First I would call the broker of record though.

Did you go under agreement? Or did these buyers find something else?

There are a lot of questions that I would have for you to answer the question correctly.
