So I'm getting a very cautious feeling about this agent.  I can't find anything on her anywhere. She has an AgentQuery page that has the basics and no sales listed, but if you go to her webpage there's this:

It seems that with a list this impressive there would be more information, right? They have a San Diego AND a New York office and are big into films too...but google only turns up a few pitch session links and what not.  No one's queried her on QT and I can't find her on any boards (AW, Agent Response Times...)  Anyone know anything????

i don't know anything about the querying process that i haven't learned here, but in other aspects of life, i'd simply call - call the agency and ask if she's an agent in good standing, how long she's been there and who her clients are.
you don't have to give your name, or at least, your real name.
