@pwalford Unless the agency states otherwise, you can query another agent after a rejection or no response, but I'd give it 60 days.

Is it acceptable to query other agents at ICM, or is no response from one considered no response from all? I'm at 90 days out on a query with no reply from AM.

naziarahman123: Two months if it's just a query that never got a response. If the other agent requested material and you have either a partial or a full with them, you'd need to wait three months to hear back from the first agent (or to check in with them).

Hope that helps.
