I queried him a few weeks ago, and was rejected about a week later. That said, it was the nicest rejection I have ever received and showed that not only had he actually read my pages, but is an awesome person. I wish more agents were like him.

Initial Query - June 29, 2021
Rejection 23 days later - July 22, 2021

I have sent SO many queries and he sent back the most personalized, the absolute kindest rejection. Absolutely lifted me up as it's been a very depressing process.

@Makaylalmob He's open to queries, but getting through a backlog due to vacation per his auto-response message. Form on the website is showing active for me, so your browser might need an update?

Does anyone know if he is closed to queries? Everything seems to indicate he's open but I can't seem to access his form to submit.

As others have said, this was the most specific feedback I've gotten from a rejection and it was absolutely phenomenal. It definitely helped soften the blow. I would advise anyone who thinks they fit his specific MSWL to query him!

Unfortunately, we were in the direct path of Hurricane Sally and are still waiting for the return of our internet (doing all this from my spotty cell service on my phone). Informed him of the technological issues and he said that was more than fine and he would wait. Will update this when I am back up and running and able to send out fulls again.

I queried because so many before me said he give really good rejection letters, I was kinda bummed when I saw that he no longer responds anymore unless interested. I'm just going to close this out unless proven otherwise
