Ms. Poelle is the kindest agent! We had some back-and-forth emails a few years ago, and I was taken then by her personal touch. Today, I received a personal rejection with a recommendation to try another great agent (already on my shortlist) and use her name as a referral :) Very much appreciated.

She gave me a referral to another agent: 9/18

She said she loved it (ah!) but couldn't rep right now so she referred me to another agent, told me to use her name -- so very very kind & enthusiastic, I love her!

it's Poe-Elle, like Noel (my friend is repped by her--I've asked that myself :) )

Does anyone know how to properly pronounce Barbara Poelle's last name? While researching her, I heard two different pronunciations by different people who don't know her personally. Thanks in advance.
