Agent Speed Date
- By: Jessica Faust | Date: Jun 10 2011
The idea of speed dating is that you get 10 minutes to sit down with a prospective date and get to know them. Since we’re asking our clients to speed date with you, we thought it only fair that we participate too. In that spirit, we present Agent Speed Date. A quick 10 minutes for you to get to know us. Today we’d like you to meet Jessica Faust.

Three authors living or dead you would want to have dinner with:
**these are the hardest questions for me.
Sarah Addison Allen
Julie Child—I think mostly for the cooking
Three characters you would want to have dinner with:
—this is so hard. I have no clue on a #3. Should it be Anne of Green Gables or Hannibal Lector? Or . . . ? I think I’m spending far too much time on this.
Jetsetter or armchair traveler:
Glass ½ full or ½ empty:
½ full and then some
Tea or Coffee:
Too much coffee
Ereader or Print book:
A little of both
Morning person or Evening person:
Morning (or middle of the night, depending on how you look at it)
Usually nothing but my typing fingers
"too much coffee" lol
Nice to know more about you. Thanks.
So… when can I see you again?
Ok, I'm sold!!
Loved this tidbit of personal info. I'd recommend Hanibal Lector. He was charming and refined, or maybe that was just Anthony Hopkins. I like Anne of Green Gables but we'd be chatting up a storm and not getting anything to eat.
I like that your glass is more than half full.
Where would my morning be without a cup of java? Good to "meet" another fellow coffee fan. I love "Pride & Prejudice". I've read it 3 times–really good book.
Taping fingers can be very musical in the right progression (my younger brother is working on his PH.D. in musical composition, so I've picked up bits and pieces of music terminology from him).
Morning person? Nah, you're the Woman-Who-Never-Sleeps! Have to up my own coffee intake just to keep up with you.
Will you be doing this for Kim and Jessica as well?
If it were a metaphorical mug, instead of a glass, I doubt it’d be half full. Coffee break, anyone? 😉
Edith Wharton. I couldn't agree more.
Hmmm… I love the idea of Hannibal Lector but I would worry that he'd be having me for dinner instead of having it /with/ me.
This was by far the best "speed date" I've ever been on! Thanks!
"1/2 full and then some". Sounds good to me!
I would definitely choose Hannibal Lector…just, bring your own food and be polite-he prefers to eat rude people.
