Must you have a Real Estate Agent or Realtor to submit your offer?

I am going to be really honest. I hate realtors and real estate agents. I hate to generalize, but too bad. So anyways, is there a way for me to submit the offer myself without having to use one of these? My main concern would be just getting forms the seller's (agent) would accept.

So anyways, is there a way for me to submit the offer myself without having to use one of these? My main concern would be just getting forms the seller's (agent) would accept. I am trying to buy a house for investment in texas, and don't want a buyers agent to get 3% for just filling out a form. I am hands on and i am doing all the work myself, so would like to use that 3% to my advantage in negotiating. I am a CPA, plus have already purchased 3 houses.

Any ideas on where i can get forms/contract that the seller (agent) would accept?

My CPA required a Masters (or equivalent) in accounting plus a grueling exam to obtain the state license. All you angry realtors probably took a weekend course. But the facts are, anyone with some intelligence (especially) in finance will see through real estate agents greedy motivation. Real Estate agents kiss your job bye bye because you will be the next Travel Agents. Sooner than later, because of technology people will start looking for ways to buy houses on their own, as they are doing most the work.
