For unethical reasons? I can't say, I've never experienced that.

I have had Offers that I hated presenting because they were low-balls that I knew wouldn't fly and despite my reasoning with the buyers, they insisted I present said Offer!

Seriously. Some agents are way too... too... nucking futz. And I know a couple of them. This is like in Robert Ringer's book Winning Through Intimidation. People try to manipulate you using information that no longer applies. If I had only known. If you had only. Well you know now, and that was then. A clerk is a jerk, and so are some agents.

An agent should always make an offer. You never know what a seller may actually do once they have an offer in hand.

That scenario is crazy.

There was one buyer that had shared with me the importance of having move-in ready when he bought because he worked long hours during the week, and his girlfriend lived three hours away.  Every weekend, he went to see her.  

For some reason, he had an REO that was beyond disgusting on his list.  Drawn in by the price of course.  The house smelled so bad of dog poop that I was gagging at the lockbox.  I refused to go in with him.

When he came back he brough the smell of the house and described the horror inside, but started talking about how he could improve it.  I literally stopped the car and told him, "If you want to make an offer on that home, I'm hooking you up with another agent.  Unless something in your life has changed, you expressly told me you wanted move in ready.  That is not even a fixer upper.  It's a total rehab project.  So if that's what you want, I don't think I understand your criteria and you need another agent."

Totally different scenario.

Only when my client tells me not to. I do educate them as to what not to do but if they insist, I write and present it. Sometimes I have to say I told you so, but if they are a client, they are a client. We do as instructed by clients.

Shame on that buyer broker, if his buyer is interested he should have put together an offer. I have learned these days to always end a conversation with a buyer broker to encourage their buyer to make an offer. Some buyer brokers are out in the world not trained well, insecure and losing deals fro their clients. I want offer on my listings and go as far as asking and reminding buyer agents to have their buyers make them

I've presented some low offers on behalf of clients who insisted. One buyer didn't get that specific house, but then paid a lot more for a house later he thought was worth a lot more. Another was an investor who insisted a specific house was only worth a specific amount of money. He was patient and kept putting in the same offer. He eventually got the property. 

I don't like putting in low offers but will do so if my client insists.

It is a weird fight and probably too late. Does he/she wants to blame you for something? What is the point of this email? Submit offer or not.

....Why some agents think that they make decisions for their clients? What happened to serving their clients interests? Was a conversation like this: Client said: write the offer and he/she said: No!?

It takes all kinds. At the end of the day, if we have a buyer agency agreement with a client we are obliged to follow all lawful instructions from that client, which includes possibly making a stupid offer.

The only time I won't make an offer is if a client is trying to do something that's not legal.  Otherwise an offer is easy and quick to write one up.

I can't think of one Hella Mitschke Rothwell ! As agents we do what our client told us to do and sometimes we may not like it such as a lowball offer in a hot seller's market.  We can try reasoning with them but it doesn't always work.  Often after  few offers they realize that their low ball tactic isn't working in current market condition.

I had a cash buyer clients who refued to give me proof of funds.  I said I could not put in the offer without it, that they would not take the offer seriously unless I had the proof of funds.   They had waivered from I will buy, my son will be the buyer, I will get a loan, I will pay cash...

I let them know that without that i could not put in the offer.

I may not reduce it to writing (why waste paper on a low ball) but I will call the other agent.  Depending on the conversation it may even get on paper.

If it was blatantly over-priced and the listing agent needed an offer to validate the wild claim, I would refuse to accommodate. Reason comes first

Of course.

Let's begin with sellers offering no or inadequate compensation for the buyer agent and the buyer doesn't want to have 'the talk.'

This is a business, not a hobby.

Then there are a myriad of 'not in good faith,' or even deceptive intent that would make me send them to an agent on 'the list.'

I have told clients who want to make extremely low offers that I don't want to write those offers unless the listing agent tells me that we should.  I will contact the listing agent and ask them if they want me to write up the offer I have.  If they actually want to see it I will not hesitate but that would be very rare.  We waste enough time in this business and there's no reason for offers that are obviously ridiculous.

A skillful agent is there to understand the odds.  If there are several very solid offers with no contigiencies why should you talk the agents making an offer?   You are wasting their time as the chance is low.... There are normally 60 different signatures per buyer has to sign.
