Just looking over your question and can't help but grin. My first reaction is, what does he mean by " friendly"? I can't imagine a agent NOT being friendly or accomodating to a client. I just feel that there is something missing here. I may be going out on a limb here but have you had issues with another agent that you were working with? I have worked with investors and those that are speculating and have chosen only to work with investors and not those that are speculating. If you want to know the differance please feel free to call but I don't think you will find me " friendly". Competent, knowledgable and resourceful yes and able to do the job in a realistic and profitable manner. You want a friend or an agent that will tell you want you need to hear not want you want to hear. Sorry if this is coming off a little rude but the way you posed your question with the "must be friendly" as a qualifier strikes me as somewhat naive to the process as a serious investor.
I am a Realtor with a small team of 3, the DeSena Group. We are located in and do most of our business in Westerville. I have worked with a number of investors in the past. And would be happy to help you. Oh...and I am very friendly! Pick me :)

That is a great question posed for the agents. Please let the agent know your investment strategy. That is are you intending to buy and hold or resale after rehabbing the property. They can help guide you through the process to insure you get a great property
Best of luck. Thanks for posing the question here on Trulia.
