A few years ago, I wrote a post entitled My Friend is in Real Estate: Might Not be the Best Choice detailing why choosing a friend to represent you in a real estate transaction may not be the best bet.
Here's an excerpt:
"It's one thing to want to help out a friend. Perhaps you see a friend struggling in the slow real estate market and want to help them out with a sale. These altruistic feelings are part of your human nature.
Ask yourself how much experience your friend, family member, or neighbor has when it comes to selling real estate. If you were having heart surgery, would you trust the operation to your friend who just graduated from medical school and has never performed the procedure? Will you spend your hard earned money and buy a stock on a tip from your neighbor who dabbles in the financial markets?
Make sure that the professional you choose for your real estate needs has a solid track record of success."
