Selecting an Agent

Choosing someone to represent you is the first and most important step in your commercial property search. Here are some tips for choosing the right agent:

1. Know what you need.
Be sure to have clear guidelines as to what you need in a commercial real estate agent. Read brochures, websites, client testimonials, etc., to match your needs with the right agent.

2. Make sure your agent is working for you.
Your agent's primary fiduciary duty should be to you, ensuring that your agent will be putting your interests first. An agent with a fiduciary duty to a property or other individual or business creates a conflict of interest that could cost you.

3. Create a relationship with the agent's staff.
Creating a functional relationship with your agent's office will help you feel confident that your transaction will be handled professionally and efficiently. You will also be assured that the entire company knows your needs, and is helping you in all areas to assist you in meeting those needs.

4. Make sure your agent knows your business.
Commercial real estate is more than buying and selling commercial properties. Your agent should understand profit and loss statements, rent rolls, and other specific areas of business.

Selecting the right agent means choosing the agent that understands your needs, and cares about your success. These simple steps will help you form a solid foundation for a profitable relationship with your commercial real estate agent.
