Need for "je suis" to be added to "d'accord"

Why is there a need to add "je suis" to "d'accord?"  There are only 2 people in this conversation, so it would seem obvious that the one is agreeing with the other without identifying himself.  It's a bit cumbersome and wordy, esp in spoken interaction.  Do  people actually talk like that in real life???

Hi Carol,

D'accord!

on its own, is used to say -

OK!

with 

Je suis d'accord (avec toi) = I agree ( with you)

You are giving an opinion and you do need the 'je suis' in this case 

Bonne Continuation!
