Let's save each other the hassle and headache of a broker. I'm looking for either a G3 or G5 Turbo with reasonable hours. Must have FIKI and AC. If you're interested in selling, please message me.

In many cases, a qualified broker who specializes in the aircraft you are looking to purchase can actually save you hassle and headaches.
The seller pays the broker's commission, so you are not losing any money by buying from one.
But some would say... "the same plane listed by a broker costs more than one that is for sale by owner."
Don't be so sure. Many for-sale-by-owner listings are above FMV. The same mentality of a seller who wants top dollar by not using a broker also wants top dollar in price.
Bottom line: yes, there are some good deals out there without brokers. There are also many good deals out there with brokers, and one should not ignore the depth of the marketplace merely because of a label.
Hmmm...I paid a fee/commission both times I bought an aircraft using a broker. So not sure that the seller pays all of the commission. That said, I felt like the fee was fair and that I received services I needed. It was interesting to me as I tried to make inquiries on my own how unresponsive lots of people were even when you are expressing interest in giving them close to half a million dollars for something they are trying to get rid of!
