Haven't heard anything yet, which confuses me, because it looks like most people hear back in a day or two. I guess I just have to wait.

Professional form rejection about it not being "right for him." To be honest, I'm amazed that he replied the same day. Can't complain about that, even if the query was rejected. On to the next agent :)

Thanks, Eliza F. This has been a very interesting experience, to say the least -- and this site and the members have been really helpful and supportive.

Accepted a different offer: 11/7 (I'm so grateful for Bill's offer and enthusiasm, but ultimately I thought another agent would be a better fit.)
