Thanks so much for thinking of me with this project. Unfortunately, it doesn’t match what I’m looking for at this time. This is an incredibly subjective business, so I encourage you to keep submitting this and I hope other agents feel differently!

ER 12/3 Such a sweet person! She let me know what was working and what wasn't, and overall I felt pretty good about it even though it ended in rejection.
