"Thank you for thinking of me. Unfortunately, this is not quite what I am currently looking for and so I will have to pass. I wish you the best finding your perfect agent!"

I wish they would at least say, "this sucked and you should just give up," or "great query but I am not the right fit."

After 77 days, I'm closing, no response. Her average says she replies negatively in five days, positively in 2.
I don't think this agent is actively growing a list.
At least a few people on QT should hear back one way or another. The data doesn't show definitive responses, except one that was either rejected or withdrawn the next day. oh well! keep on trying!

Just a reminder that QT only captures a portion of queries to an agent, I've heard about 30% of queries and responses and stuff, so she might be accepting people outside of the posts we find here... that said I submitted my query on 4/17/22 and suspect not to hear anything, but we'll see

She has no sales listed on PM. And she hasn't requested materials from anyone in the last year. So what is she exactly doing as an agent?
