Hi Patrick, now IT IS showing up as a yellow bar; still no action one way or the other and there are still some like mine that have not yet been acted on...thanks for your guidance!!

Thanks Patrick; this is the result: Query Age 107 days 91 (red) 98 (green) And it's still not showing up in his timeline (e.g. yellow bar indicating my submission). So, do I take this to mean somehow my query was lost, even though I have a confirmation and link to go with it...? I appreciate your further guidance. Thank you.

KamaK1960, It is possible he closed to queries so he can catch up with his backlog. So give him a bit more time.

You won't see your query show up in the timeline until you enter it into the tracking system. Click the "Learn How" link above in the red box to learn how. If you need any help with that, please let me know.

Hi again MWeisberg, I paid today for an upgrade to my QT membership and selected Paul's timeline but did NOT find my query anywhere in the few left in his queue not even a yellow bar to indicate its submission back in March. And yet I DID submit it in the manner he prescribed and even have a link to it that indicates " no decision has yet been made." In your opinion, should I withdraw it and then re-query him when he reopens his queries next week, hoping for a better result? Seems to me my query was lost somewhere along the way and yet I did use QT, per his guidance, to submit it. I appreciated your previous counsel and would ask for it again; I CAN, of course, withdraw it entirely and send it on to another agent I have targeted at his practice, but for me Paul still seems to be the best fit for me. Thoughts? Thank You!
