I agree with everything Strange said, and here's my input:
Do take one or two lessons, see how you work together. It might work in theory, but sometimes a teaching style doesn't mesh with how you learn.
Look around the barn, is it cluter free, clean? Do the horses look in good shape and care? Will they make you use their vet and farrier or will you be able to use who you like? Is the tack room organized with enough room for all of your things given? Does the facility cater to what you and your horses want/need?
