Any opinions about using a recruiter 'head huntter' to help leverage a better deal and help find the best fit for a long term relationship?

 
OR
 
Is it just as easy/better to do it yourself?
 
Any recruiters that are worthy of a referral?

I'm still pretty new but know of a couple of buddies who have done well with recruiters.  Are you on the east coast? I know of a really good one who works the East Coast down to Florida market.

Looking at your recent threads, I would say you have big plans on your horizon.

Are you looking to go the independent route, regional, or to a wirehouse?  What is it your primary reason for leaving where you are?

I appreciate your interest, time and response. IF I was considering such a change I would be a bit reticent to give an answer with detail on a public BBS like this.
 
I think it's safe to say that all of us are open to situations that can make our business more efficient and or competitive. Having a business model that uses options heavily removes the larger part of the Indy firms right out of the gate I've been told. I personally would not want to work from home and lack the resources financial and otherwise to open a new office at this time.
 
There is one WH that I believe would want the type of business I produce. Other than that regionals appear to want newer talent vs. the guy with the million $, not that they don't want that as well.
 
Not ever having investigated this kind of change I do know that the complexities of finding the perfect match are far more important than the size of the check you may be able to find.
