FQ: 5/3/2022
Full req: 9/23/2022
Offer of rep: 2/2/2023
Pending conversations with other agents...!
Informal acceptance of offer 3/1/2023, but negotiations took a long time because I negotiated some changes to the agency contract - which requires the agency president in the loop, and she is much slower to respond. Comms with Marisa remained rapid & exemplary.
Signed 4/28/2023.

Some details on post-query responses, evidence of her excellent communication:
11/5: she sent a message giving me the exact date when she's scheduled to read my full (12/9). As someone who has three fulls out for >300 days elsewhere, I appreciate this enormously.
12/12: message saying she's a few days behind, should get to mine by end of week. A+ communication.
12/19: Personal email with planned follow-up after the holidays. Stay tuned!
1/24: Two weeks after her back-to-work date, I emailed her to check in. Naturally she'd fallen behind on emails after holidays. We scheduled a zoom for 2/2. See offer date above!
