I would suggest working with a smaller broker. We have more flexibility to customize a plan that suits your needs. I imagine you will get a number of responses to this inquiry - be sure to interview the ones that interest you, as you need to have a good working relationship with your broker in order to stay happy.
Incidentally, I was just looking to hire a new agent in NoVA to handle my short sale leads (we do the negotiation [I am an attorney as well], the agent just does what they do best - market/sell the property), in case there is some synergy (!).
Feel free to give me a call to bat ideas around, even if you are trying to decide between a couple of other brokerages.
