Did anyone get an auto response? I sent two queries, (one mentioning it was a repeat because I didn't get the auto response) and neither got a response. I copied the email right of the website.

Update: I recent on Monday (mentioning it I'd sent the night before, and apologizing if it was a duplicate) and finally got the auto response. I'm thinking it had something to do with it being on the weekend! Schedule send is my advice. Thanks for the help!

I'm just going to close this one out as well... it's been 67 days without an answer so I think I've been rejected.

@bradleys5235, I received an auto response. Did yours go into a spam folder perhaps?
Another option is there might be a general email for the agency where you can ask if the query was received. Just a thought and good luck!

KCQUERIES I don't know an absolute answer to your question, but if the site says "you should feel free to reach out to another agent from the agency", I don't see how it could hurt to do so, apart from the time involved.

Does anyone know if this is a one and only agency or if you have passed the 8 week timeline without any response, you can contact a second agent?
I queried over 120 days ago. The website seems to make it seem as you shouldn't send to another agent if you don't hear back, but it says a bit lower in the conversation here, that Suzie has mentioned that after a certain amount of weeks, you should feel free to reach out to another agent from the agency.
Any feedback would be welcome.
