Having no publicly stated clients, despite the fact that she seems to have been around for almost two years (site footer: Kirsten Neuhaus Literary Agency ©2011.), makes me a little uneasy. It also contradicts this part of her 'About':

Kirsten Neuhaus has worked at Elaine Markson Agency, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates and Vigliano Associates, developing her own client list as well as handling foreign rights.

To me, the bolded part means she should already have clients.

No social networking links which seems unusual for a new US agent looking for clients.

EDIT: Querytracker has a few comments on her. Twitter says she's part of Foundry but she's not listed there.

Not here, but there
When you Google her name, there's a deal that pops up on Publisher's Marketplace on Sept 24, 2012 but I can't see it since I'm not a member.

And that's weird that she says she's part of Foundry when her name's not there.

I'm not a member either so I can't check, sorry Undercover.

I'm not seeing any actual red flags, she seems professional and well-intentioned, but the Foundry thing and her lack of clients doesn't add up.

Personally, I'd avoid submitting to this agency until she's more established.
