Puzzling? I think not. I would find it puzzling if a potential buyer would seek the advice of someone who profited from pure transaction. Not finding their buyer a home which meets their criterium. Not finding their buyer a home in a better school district. But just getting their buyer to sign. This is the LAST person I would ask for advice regarding neighborhoods. If logistics do not permit visiting various areas, I would guess a few well-placed phone calls, a little Net surfing, or even a post to a 'Folly in...' folder established for various states here on the Fool would result in information regarding desirable neighborhoods.

By the way, would the moniker "realbro" perhaps stand for 'real estate broker'? Just wondering...
