I tried working with a buyer broker once and he steered me towards the boats he was representing as the seller broker. Completely ignored my criteria. He also advised me not to purchase privately and would not help me with any brokerage boats I found. He actually told me the Dufor 27 he was selling(on the market for 3 years) was a better boat than the Pearson 28 that I found that just came on the market.

I have since spent a lot of time better educating myself on boats.

I have had similar experiences with an RE broker.
