Can anyone recommend a Broker who is worth a !@#$?

Pardon my attitude but I've got one. I have contacted 3 different Brokers. Names that have represented businesses here on this site and another very similar site and have received little or no response. I have sent email, left messages and they don't even respond to initial inquiries. It is amazing to me. Is business that good for them that they can completely ignore potential buyers? If anyone can speak from experience and recommend a Broker who COMMUNICATES, I would greatly appreciate it.

Talk to several on the phone and then some in person. Fill out any paperwork they require in a timely manner. You'll know it when you find a good one. It's really nice when you get one that truly tries to match you with the right business. Some are clueless. They will take a listing that is a piece of c-#*%^ and waste everyone's time. Keep searching, there are a FEW good ones out there that really care and do their job in a sincere and first class manner!

Note: If you haven't figured it out yet, this site has a lot of people that are full of hot air and B.S. and a few that really want to help. I don't know Don Barrick, but he seems to be one of the ones who is really trying to help. There are many others like him that really care about helping others do the right thing.

Good luck in your search. Finding a broker was the easiest part of the whole process for me. Finding, financing, managing, and making money in your new venture can be much more difficult.

Part of the problem is the fact that there are a great many people on this Site - Buyers, Sellers and Brokers - who are rank amateurs. There are some that simply have nothing to offer: No experience, no understanding of even how to respond and no class! But a great deal of that is the fact that it is the Internet. I have contacted dozens of supposed Buyers and Sellers through this Site, only to have a tremendous minor number respond, even though it was they that asked for the initial contact. Again, that is the Internet for you.

I am not excusing the Brokers. As a Broker, it is the most common complaint I hear from people, both on and off the Internet. I don't understand it. My apologies.
