No because I let them know what the status is. And in a multiple offer situation I have the seller initial, on the offer, that it was presented on a specific date and rejected. Good question because I think there are issues sometimes

No, but I have questioned a seller because I suspected she was trying to prevent any offers. Sure enough, four people submitted offers, one of which came from the listing agent herself. She had the winning bid. Curious, isn't it?

No never. They know because I've kept them in the loop during the process and let them know the end result as well.  If they didn't win the bid I ask them if they'd like me to call them in case the contract in 1st fell through for some reason.

I have questioned whether the other agent submitted the offer.  The response to our offer was the listing agent crossing out the offer with a big "rejected" written across initialed by the agent, and an addendum signed by the sellers giving the agent the authority to reject offers on their behalf. We did ask - did the sellers even see the offer?
