This is where the rubber meets the road. You need to talk to a few referrals, past and recent. You should read more than a few reviews on Yelp or the agents website. There are a lot of third party review sites online today. Warning, none of them are perfect! I feel that these sites are a great resource and should be used in the decision process, but not the only thing used to decide.
