    However, it can be enough for good just to relate to your skills.
    I have had a few roles where I have negotiated a higher rate than advertised.
    The clients have agreed as they realise they are getting someone very experienced.
    That would come under "some combination of" would it not?

          I don't think so. If you reply to an e-mail with that then 3 days later an agent rings and you explain you were put forward 3 days ago but gave them 2 days to get back to you or they lost exclusivity, and that agent puts you forward instead, if the original agency kicks off later on you can show them where to stick it. If they kick off without you sending an e-mail they'll just create a big enough tulipstorm that no-one wants to handle it.

          Sure they might try to do that anyway but I reckon it gives you some recourse - especially since the 2nd agent would likely say to the client/1st agent that their exclusivity expired and you can forward them the e-mail.

          Never trust an agent but at least in this scenario you are pitting agent against agent cos they all want their cut
          Unless you're the lead dog, the scenery never changes.

            Problem with the 48 hours is some clients take over a week to give feedback.
            In other cases the 48 hours means you have lost the contract.

            So you need to tell the next agent to check regardless.
