As a general rule only the listing agent is to deal directly with seller of the property. Unless the listing agent and seller agree to it. Why would you want your Realtor to make the offer to the seller?? There is also the issue of agency. Who is the each Realtor working for? If your Realtor is a buyers agent then chances are that they would not ever deal directly with the seller. Hope this helps. Good luck

Can a Realtor submit a offer that is not his/her listing directly to the seller.

Most likely you want your realtor to explain the nuances of your offer and you feel that the listing agent may not do as good job or has other interests at heart.
In my area (MA), it is the right of the agent who procure’s the offer to request to be present
when the seller recieves the offer. So your realtor cannot do it by himself, be he can be there to make sure it is explained correctly.
A good way to do this would be for your realtor to call the listing agent and explain that they have an offer, but not to give any details of the offer until he is present in person with the seller.
Your realtor can’t control what happens after the offer is presented and he leaves, but at least you know that
it will get explained correctly in the first place.
