Has anyone parsed if you can resub to another agent at this agency? Their guidelines seem unclear.

Gernert Company does not list him as closed (and they do list closed agents). Nor did he pin the 8/23 tweet so to know he was closed one would have to go deep into his twitter feed. So I am not sure of his status.

Agencies that only respond to queries if they are interested (this one) should have their own section in QT.

I was able to send him a full because of a direct recommendation from one of his clients, and I'm past the 6-month mark on waiting for him to read it.

The point being, he is wayyyyyyy behind on his reading. Forget posted turnaround times; buckle in and move on with your life.
