Hi. Has anyone dealt with this agency?
Here are some stuff I found.

Contact:
Principal: Reid Boates, [email protected]
Reid Boates Literary Agency, Box 328, 69 Cooks Crossroad, Pittstown, NJ 08867, USA

Not much on P&E:

But a whopping 69 hits on Amazon ranging from the hard science of astrology (just kidding) to cook books. There don't seem to be any fictions but then again is Astrology considered non-fiction?

Reid Boates

After enthusiastically agreeing to be my literary agent, Reid Boates continuously failed to respond to my phone calls and emails, broke numerous promises, and then resigned without expalantion. Beware!

There is good news! My misunderstanding with Reid has been resolved. His excellent reputation is well justified.

Holy crap! This place is near where I live - and I live in the boonies (well, by New Jersey standards).

Sorry for the interruption. But it's not often that the publishing world comes close to where I live, know what I mean? :D
