Oh well. I thought from Carrie's MSWL we might be a match, and I really liked what I'd seen of her online. But at least she's fast and she used my name in the letter :)


Hi [name],

Thanks so much for thinking of me with this project. Unfortunately, even though there are some great elements, it didn't quite spark for me. Please keep in mind this is an incredibly subjective business, so I encourage you to keep submitting and I hope other agents feel differently.

Best of luck!

Carrie
