Hi All,

I recently inherited a sizable portfolio of muni bonds that I wish to sell. I have already sold some of the bonds through my full service broker (in some cases he bought them and in some cases he sold them to another broker).

Using investinginbonds.com I can see that immediately after I sold the bonds my broker (or another broker) made a lot of money by buying them from me and selling them for a much higher price.

What is the best way to go about selling municipal bonds without getting killed on the transaction?
