EQ: 28th April, 2022
Full request: 25th June
Kind rejection: 28th June

Received an offer of rep from another agent, so sent Kate a nudge on June 24th. She got back to me with a full request on the 25th, then a kind rejection on the 28th of June.

Email query: 05/03/22
Nudged with offer: 05/24/22
Second and final nudge: 05/31/22
Received auto-response indicating she's out of office until my deadline, so I'm going to guess this will be a CNR.
