Bricklink Seller Review - Brick Brokers

What do you do for a living?  Or maybe more importantly, what is your personality type?  Or of even greater importance, are either of those suited to running an online LEGO parts store?  I'm sure there are lots of folks out there that are suited to this type of hobby or business.  And many that aren't.  Personally, my income and interests include drafting house plans and creating kml files for Google Earth.  This eye for detail is, I believe, helpful.  When someone calls themselves a broker and announces through their username that they use Excel, I would have to think they have this ability for detail as well.

Recommendation
Michelle is fast and friendly.  What else do you need?  In fact she's so fast she informed me my order was ready even though I had marked it "Keep Open". This is definitely a store to frequent.  There is a large selection of new and used parts and a very professional attitude that is also a pleasure to work with.  The prices and shipping are a little high but I've learned to somewhat overlook that so long as my order comes in under 10c per part, shipping included.  It ain't magic but at least it feels right.
