Are you still in touch with the Realtor with whom you bought your current home?
Otherwise, a recommendation from an Agent or someone you know and trust will work!
When contracting a Realtor, more than just the fact of whether they listed homes and sold them in your town!
They could have been working with a number of buyers that bought with them...
The Realtor could be a long time resident of Madison and knows the city well....
But most importantly, you need in your Realtor to find that person that communicates well with you, you trust,
and a Realtor who straightforward and honest with you, about the current market situation in your area, and
the current potential market value of your home, based on recent similar home sales adjusted to your homes' qualifications/differences.... And hopefully you will find an agent who is going to market your home heavily on the internet, that's where buyers start searching first!

Truly believe that once you obtain some of this information you just might want to focus on a realtor that you are able to "connect" with from a communication and trust factor just as much as how many sales his brokerage has had. Believe the issue is more based on the local market and your combined (you and the realtor) ability to price the home properly as well as staging the home to sell in quick time frame. Often sellers do not understand the difference between following a market and leading a market in today's ever changing market.
AGain, I would be pleased to provide you a quick avenue to obtain this information and then let you determine the next step with some real confidence in your pending decisions.
If you are looking for a REALTOR, you may want to take other criteria into consideration. You may want to consider how many days the property was on the market, how much below list price it sold for, etc.
My recomendation would be to focus on the REALTOR with the tools to get your home sold in this market in your time frame.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
Good Luck with your move.
