Best way to use a broker? I''''m 0 for 2.

I think using a broker is most helpful, provided you are well prepared yourself. I spent a good deal of time researching boats, asking questions etc until I got close to knowing what I wanted. I think searched listings online and CALLED the listing brokerage to view the boat. When I got to the boat, I would talk with the broker showing me the boat and that conversation served as an interview. Through that process, I found a honest, knowledgable broker with whom I ultimately worked with very happily and successfully.

Hope this helps.
