@ndrwdyng, he didn't before, but he does now since mine got lost! He just set it up today, so if it's been eight weeks, I'd send a follow-up message. Apparently it's being very temperamental.

queried through Steven's online form. Should I have gotten an email confirmation? I didn't get one. Any recent queriers remember if they got a confirmation?

He wrote a very thoughtful and personalized letter, including some very helpful suggestions and a request to submit future projects to him. He is definitely a terrific advocate for his clients with a passion for what he does. Anyone who signs with him is lucky indeed.

@sarah it's totally fine so long as the first agent's CNR timeframe has lapsed. Most agents do not share queries.
