Very sad to hear this Pabeach. Try referals from friends, family, neighbors, etc... If that does not work check out who has properties for sale and or sold in your neighborhood. Interview as many people until you have a comfort level with the person you choose to employ, and they will work hard for you to achieve your goals.
Once you choose the agent to work with, they will handle all details to get your home listed and active on the market. Make sure that agent has internet and online marketing experience. 80+% of buyers come from on-line these days.
