    Ask each of them to demonstrate how they will work to achieve you the best result. Any one can say anything to you and make it sound good, but actually demonstrating to you how they work and how they work with buyers is a key to choosing the right one. If they can't demonstrate to you ask them to leave ( nicely of course)
