Best way to use a broker? I''''m 0 for 2.
just to clarify: our broker did not actually go with us to look at boats. She was in Maine, here.... We did all the travelling to see boats on our own. But to reiterate, she was INVALUABLE in actually purchasing the boat, as well as in giving much advice about specific boats we were interested in. I can''t say enough good things about her. (And, for what its worth, we''re essentially do-it-yourselfers..we sold our last boat on our own, and we''ll sell our house on our own. but, especially since it''s free to you, i don''t see any reason NOT to find a great broker to dp the transaction for you.) If you''re interested, our broker was Annie Gray at Gray & Gray in Maine. Email me off-list if you''d like contact info.
