4/13 - sent query via referral. requested full same day
4/21 - nudge w offer
4/27 - setup call
4/29 - offer of rep

just want to add a note that I ultimately did not go with him, but I think Kirby is a stellar human and any person would be lucky to have him as an agent, and I'd absolutely recommend querying him if his list speaks to you.

Apologized for not responding sooner and thought my project wasn't in line with what he was looking for at the moment, and given his current client load. Said he was grateful for the consideration and wished me success elsewhere. :)
