FAQs About Commercial Brokers

What services do commercial brokers provide?

Commercial brokers represent you in buying, selling, and leasing commercial real estate. Key services include:

  • Advising you on market conditions, property values, zoning, etc.
  • Identifying and evaluating potential properties
  • Marketing listings and networking to find buyers/tenants
  • Negotiating purchase/lease terms
  • Facilitating due diligence
  • Overseeing the transaction closing process

How do brokers get paid?

Commercial brokers earn commissions from successfully completed sales or leases. Commissions are typically 4-6% of the transaction value, often split between the tenant/buyer rep and landlord/seller rep.

Should I work with a tenant rep or landlord rep?

Tenant reps exclusively represent you in lease negotiations. Landlord reps work only for property owners. It’s best to pick a broker who solely represents your interests.

What makes a great commercial broker?

The best brokers have extensive market knowledge, negotiating skills, and dedication to your service. Look for brokers with relevant designations like CCIM or SIOR. Check their track record of completed transactions in your market/asset class.

How can I find and vet commercial brokers?

Network with business associates, search online listings, and check brokerage websites. Interview several brokers and ask about their experience, clientele, marketing plan, fees, and references. Vet brokers carefully to find the right fit for you.
