Always try to acquire an electrician who has a professional and experienced attitude to you and your electrical problems. This can be gauged by the time they take to reply to your enquiry and how they reply to your questions. Professional contractors are excellent communicators. A professional electrician knows his trade well and can explain details and solutions without relying on third party sources. Make sure your electrician is able to understand your needs properly and has the ability to listen to your worries and concerns, as well as providing some reasonable, sensible and well thought out solutions to benefit you now and in the future.
