Continue to ask your friends about their advisors. Find out what they like or dislike about them. Then, interview two or three of the best candidates for the job. Hold yourself back from picking the one with the cheapest services because you are most likely to get what you pay for.

Never underestimate the importance of written materials. If a potential advisor has written and published articles, a book, or a newsletter that you can read—something more than a shiny and colorful brochure—at least you can see what areas they have specific knowledge an expert in something.
