Listing searches by genre - effing hopeless?

Trying to compile a list of agents that represent fantasy novels, but a search on the listings for Agents+ Fantasy+ brings up everything because agents that aren't interested in fantasy stick "no fantasy" into their descriptions and the ones that are say things like "interested in fantasy".

Short of trying to exclude every possible version of "no fantasy thank you very much" I'm a bit stuck. Anyone able to shed any light on how I might get a list.

Seems like W&A just imported the book description text into the listings without bothering to tag anything with useful metadata.

    All fiction is fantasy of a kind! You could narrow it down - science fantasy, for instance.
