Very impressed, got a response the next day. Although it was a rejection it offered helpful advice (my word count for this style of book would need to be much higher) and also included positive comment on my writing style.

Rejection - 5 weeks later for my women's mystery suspense:
Thank you for your query and for giving me the opportunity to read your work.
I’m sorry for my delayed reply; I’ve been behind on my reading.
I admired the premise, but I’m afraid I wasn’t completely drawn in by the narrative.

I’m sorry to write with disappointing news and wish you the best with your writing.

Best wishes,

Rejection after about one month. The rejection came from Catherine Cho on behalf of Jonny Geller. The letter was a helpful rejection, offering some advice on my query and my opening chapters. I appreciated the thoughtful response, although the writer of the letter did get my MC's name wrong.

Had a pitch favorited during their #PitchCB and submitted. Received a rejection email with helpful, personalized feedback. Knew it was a long shot but was happy with my experience. TY!

I submitted to Mr. Geller but received a response that was signed by the "New Writing Team."

I'm confused, as the response was very encouraging and asked for me to submit more work to "me." I have no clue if the "me" in question is actually Mr. Geller, or is the New Writing Team. Ah, well. It was a lovely rejection either way.

Wondering if anybody has gotten any response from submitting to this agency.

I believe all agents are currently open to submissions now. They've opened a new dept. called Curtis Brown Creative and seem to be inviting new material:
