Re: Tips for Enduring Brokers?
No idea where you're looking, but you're clearly talking to the wrong brokers. I have always found the brokers that I dealt with to be quite willing to show me a boat. Though, I certainly wouldn't buy plane tickets without getting a firm appointment, at a specific time, to see the boat.
Yes, of course they ask some questions. They're trying to grease the skids for a sale. No one says that you have to answer anything that you don't want to.
Maybe you need to get some recommendations for good brokers in the area you're looking, and for the kind of boat you are looking for.
