If you have already been interacting with the listing broker, he/she will likely not be willing to do a commission split with another broker that you bring on just for the purchasing
process. You may end up in a position where you will have to compensate your buyer's broker out of your own pocket as a consultant.
I have worked with Mike Johnson of Eastport Yacht Sales in Annapolis
before and found him to be capable, professional and quite likeable. I would gladly work
with him again if the opportunity ever arose. I also worked with Forbes Horton in Annapolis
and found him to be the exact opposite. Wouldn't give him the time of day, and damn sure wouldn't hire him for anything. To call him a self-righteous ******* would be an insult to self-righteous ******** everywhere. I have also worked with Richard Kahn of Annapolis Sailyard. A great guy, but not sure he is doing brokerage work
anymore due to his age.
