how do I find out if a listing agent really sent our offer to the bank for a reo?

the listing agent talked bad about the house and surrounding area. I have the emails to show that. then he did not send the paperwork for the offer. we had to get another realtor to do the paperwork and send the listing agent the offer. we are almost sure he never sent it to the bank. no counter and they just dropped the price to within 9,000. of our offer. and we are approved and have down payment.

You may call (or stop in)  the listing office and ask to talk with the office broker (or manager) who technically has legal right to all of the listings in that company.  Ask the broker to follow up on this for you.  Broker will talk to listing agent and get to the bottom of this.

Go direct to broker (or office manager in the case of a large company) and get faster results if you are currently getting nowhere.

E-mail the broker in charge, state your concerns, and demand proof that your offer was presented.

Contact his broker and if need be, call the board of realtors.

It is a tough situation.  I actually had arguments with agents who I did not think were submitting offers I submitted.  You have to get proof.  I ask the listing agent to have someone from the bank sign off declining our offer.

thank you all. he told our agent the bank declined the offers. and he is the only one who can submit the offers. I have a idea he might be trying to drive the price down and buy it himself. he also said the bank had no offers at all. it has been listed since may. something is going on.

Your Realtor that submitted the offer should be able to follow up to request a written rejection letter and speak to the Listing Agents Broker for assistance. I have seen where there are multiple offers and the agents deal only with the Highest & Best. However it does not make sense the price was dropped after you submitted an offer with out getting a response. Good Luck, hope you get the home you want.

Good Morning! 
Erika has provided a great answer.  I would add that if you do not hear back from the listing agent within a reasonable amount of time that you may want to contact his broker (if the agent is not the broker) and ask for assistance. 

This definitely sounds fishy.  Also, there maybe a violation of FAR rules/regs somewhere in the bad-mouthing of the home and area. In any case, this conduct is definitely not professional!
Good luck in getting an accepted offer!

I would send a written request confirming your offer and the terms of it signed by you requesting a written rejection from the bank ...or verification that it was presented.

What you stated does not make a lot of sense.  If you are close to the banks price, they should have counteroffered.
