Looks like Ms. Root has not responded to a query since December. I read somewhere (website?) that responses (if any) could take up to 8 weeks.

I usually close out after a few weeks with no response. And if I hear back from the agent after that point, it's easy to edit your Query Record results in QT.

Has anyone heard back on their query sent this year?
