"“I have worked with my IMS trade broker for several years now using the IMS Barter system. He always provides knowledgeable information. It helps me to make informed decisions on how to adequately use my trade dollars. He works with me to manage my account and help get the “word out” which has greatly increased business in our practice. He is available by phone to provide clarification and/or additional information and is always prompt in returning phone messages. I will continue to use his services whenever the need arises and I would recommend him highly.”"
