Oh, I find that strange too, Paul. It's almost an insult - like she doesn't think you'll deliver the Offer to the Sellers! Did she ask you if she could deliver it to them?

Why didn't she just let you do your job and send the fully executed to your client? She knew where the seller was. I'm assuming he doesn't live on the vacant land so do they know each other?

Paul if you said 24+ years ago this happened I would say OK about delivering it to you... that was more professional... now days email or DocuSign with a call would be more professional... your title about Land peaked my interest:))Endre

I remember a time when I hand delivered EVERY offer to the seller...I could not trust the biased agents to submit it.

NO, it is not a violation of MLS, ETHICS or anthing else...IT IS MY JOB TO MAKE SURE THAT MY CLIENTS OFFER IS SEEN BY THE SELLER.

The only thing I could not do is negotiate directly with the seller...

That is odd - I understand you can present an offer in person to a seller, but pretty sure their agent needs to be present.  However, with no signature, it isn't a valid contract.

Unsusual indeed, unlikely to break any rules. In my state, the selling agent has the right to present the offer to the seller directly. Rarely happens, but it's possible.

Not a violation out here in Cali, they're allowed to go directly to the seller to present.  Should let the listing agent know first though and only as a last resort.  Wonder if they're new.  Either way, I'd have a "don't ever do an end-run around me again" conversation with that agent.

Strange doesn't even begin to cover it.  Don't be knockin' on my client's door without my permission.  That's a violation of the code of ethics, and probably a violation of local MLS rules, as well.

Rest assured he'd be hearing from me, loud and clear.  I'll send Candice over to knock him upside the head.

I don't think that it is an acceptable business practice.  The time limits may have expired by the time it was dropped off.  You might want to look for another agent to work with.

I think you need to reach an agreement with your client, in writing, that all communications with to the sellers must go through you. Provide a copy to the buyer's. She is taking advantage of her familiarity with the sellers and no good will come of it.
