I am buying my first house. I wanted to get a realtor to make sure I do things right. She has many years of experience and was recommended to me by someone who used her. She is very nice but not very aggressive. I was surprised to find out that she submitted the offer via email (she scanned offer documents and emailed them) and at this point we are waiting for sellers reply.

I find that most offers are submitted via email these days. It's the fastest way to get the offer into the listing agent's hands and also gives you a trail of exactly what you sent and when. That being said, in Massachusetts, buyers agents have the right to request that they be able to present the offer directly to seller in person. I don't find many agents doing that now days because the timing of coordinating that is not often as convenient, but an agent may have a specific reason why they feel it is better to present it one method or another, depending on the circumstances of the offer. The most important thing is that you are comfortable with your agent and trust that they are respresenting your best interests, as they should be.
