What types of customers have you worked with?

Sellers, buyers, investors, relocation, retirees, land trusts.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

If you don't personally know the realtor, then interview more then one agent.  You need to feel comfortable and in sink with your agent.  The process is sometimes stressful and lengthy and working with someone who is not only professional, but also approachable is important.
