Hi GTriolo1031 - if you are looking for an agent to help you sell your home, my advice would be to find 3 or so Realtors from local offices and interview them. Ask them if they are full-time agents, how familiar they are with your neighborhood, what kind of advertising they do, and what level of service they will be providing you. How a Realtor answers these questions should give you a strong indication of which agent you want to work with.
If you are looking to sell your home on your own, the easiest and fastest way to do that would be to put a "For Sale" sign up in your yard. If you're on a high traffic street you might get some decent interest and maybe even find a qualified buyer. To generate more interest you can post your home on Craigslist, Zillow, and similar free websites.
The below article has a lot of useful information on FSBOs.
Good luck, and feel free to contact me directly if you'd like any additional assistance.
