OTOH if your budget is north of $250K, you know what you want, and you can close the deal in two weeks if all goes well, you should have no problem finding a good broker.
Truer words were never said.

Otherwise a buyer or seller could go with my recommendations/description in post 26 and have fun playing the "Horse Traden" games!
