|Abstract:||This study examines the importance of nineteen selection criteria consumers might use in their choice of a professional service provider. Factor analysis reduced the variables to five factors—knowledge, comfort, time, social reputation, and accessibility. The results present strong implications for competitiveness of professional service providers, with knowledge and comfort items representing those most important to individuals.|
