I'm not finding a site for her agency. Typically I rely on comments here but a few have me worried so I think just to be safe I am going to mark this one as a Do-Not-Query agency......

She is listed on Preditors and Editors as charging a fee and is listed as one of the top 20 agents to stay away from.

Cyndy you must be mistaken. Look again, Barbara Bauer is listed in the worst not Barbara Kouts
