    Okaaay, then...this wasn't a one-time occurrence, but possibly her standard operating procedure. It's not industry standard, but might be worth it if she 'clicks' with your work.

    Honestly, it was a little off putting for me. I felt like even I wasn't being given the time to decide if I thought we were a good fit.
    I mean this is my career and she's pressuring me to pull the trigger in 2 days?
    I felt like I had the right to hear what the other agents would have to say.

    All the other agents responded saying this wasn't standard, one going to far as to warn me to be careful.
    I don't know. I guess I still think no agent is better than a bad agent.
