Too many questions within that question. How much time passed in between the two offers? Is the $300,000 an overprice? Is $250,000 a market value?
Under 'normal' circumstances, no, it's ridiculous. I wish I could say I've never seen anything more astoundingly lame . . . except I have. LOL
PS. If it was my seller and the offer came in through another agent, of course I would submit it. If my buyer wanted to do that, I would probably cease working with that buyer.

It is the law that all offers be submitted to a seller. They don't need to respond or to accept, but you must submit.

The answer may be "it depends" while remembering that all written offers must be submitted to the seller.  "It depends" may enter the scenario "if" the seller has expressed(and there is proper documentation) that they do not want to see any offers under a certain price.      

Most buyers/sellers don't understand our obligations unless we explain the "rules"(and sometimes it requires repeatedly explaining).   Upfront conversation with our sellers regarding offer presentation needs to take place -- they are the decision maker, we guide but not decide.

Depends on circumstances. If 300 is fair market value, I would tell buyer that a 250 would probably be rejected since seller already rejected a 300,000 offer.

If my seller denied an Offer for $300K and I got another one in on their behalf for $250K, absoultely, I would submit it. Regardless of the price, I submit all Offers.

Even if the seller said no to the $300K and said, "Don't bring me any Offers less than $325K," I'd still let them know that I received that $250K Offer.

There is so much  "depends" in this question that it might as well be a television commercial at a senior center.

Let's make the presumption that when the offer for $300,000 came in, my seller, as I was leaving her house, threw the loose paperwork over my head and screamed at me "And don't bring me any other 'lowball' offers like this again!" slamming the door hard enough that the all the neighbourhood dogs started barking in unison.

So, under those conditions ... no ... I'm not bringing her a $250,000 offer... I ain't got no death-wish.

I would.  It's not for us to determine what our seller will and will not deny unless if we have something in writing and signed by seller that he will deny any offer $300k and under.  The house may be sitting on the market for a month when the $250k offer comes. He may be motivated to sell by now.

I personally like to not have to deal with me being on the wrong side of the law, so I am presenting all the offers. I like to get a signature on everything to be able to get something back to the cooperating agent just as proof the offer was presented. Knowing the law helps everyone involved.

You never know, the 300 could be VA financed wanting 15k back (I've seen it) in seller covered expenses and the 250 could be all cash.  Now if the seller said "I don't want to see anything under 350" I'd tell the 250 agent that and not to waste their time.
