ER: 2/15/17 form rejection:

"Thank you for your query. I'm afraid Nicole is simply not taking on new clients at the moment; her list is crammed full and she has as much work as she can handle. We may well be missing out on something wonderful, but Nicole is determined not to over-stretch as she'd hate to neglect any of her current authors.

Our apologies for this disappointing response, we hope that someone else comes through for you soon."

I read that she does have a full list but still sometimes considers adding on a selective basis so took a shot :) I'm happy she responded.

Patrick: There is another agent there, and she seems great (though she requested and then rejected my full). Duvall Osteen.

pickfordm--if you don't mind my asking, did you send your query letter to the email address on the website and address it Duvall Osteen specifically?

There are two other agents working with her now. Ultimately Duvall Osteen passed on my mss, but she was wonderfully generous and responsive.
Frances Coady is the other agent. I know nothing!

Received email from her assistant saying she's no longer taking on new clients.

Queried to Nicole yesterday, received a polite (likely form) rejection email from an assistant about a day later, stating that Nicole's list is just too stuffed. I don't know if that applies to the other agents at Aragi as well; all queries go to the same email.

Fornickels, I think just the sample. That's how I sent it out.

Does this mean that they want the full manuscript attached during the query?
"Submitted queries should include a cover letter with your name, a short bio, the title of the work, and a brief synopsis. Manuscripts should be attached as .PDF or .docx files and should be titled in the format “Last Name_Manuscript Title”, e.g. “Ginsburg_Sunset City”."

Monday I've requeried Nicole with Venom since she was open--today I've heard back with pass--not taking any new clients. I'll try her this spring with Chain Reaction.

3/28/16--on 3/23/16, I've requeried Nicole Aragi with Chain Reaction. Today I've heard back from her with the same pass--real selective, full clientele list.

I just checked Nicole Aragi's website. She is not closed to queries. At least, I didn't find any information to the effect.
I have done all the reads I could, and something like 9 drafts. I'm going to check the winds and see whether agents are interested in the project. Thanks for the advise. Much appreciated.

Don't query her or any closed agent. It wastes everybody's time. Do give the mss. another read if you are unsure.
Are you in a writers' group? I run both my mss. and query letters through my group. The queries are put hrough a rigorous process of research jnto an agent's interests plus critiques by another writer friend who is good at sales letters.
It is a diffiucult, anxious process by nature, harder than writing the book itself in some ways.
