November 17, 2015  /  commercial real estate brokers

What’s the best way to ensure that you’re finding the perfect commercial building for your needs? By finding the perfect commercial office broker. You’ve worked hard to get to this point. You know what you’re looking for in an office space. You know what your budget is.

Before you go any further, it’s time to ask yourself the most important questions of all—what is your broker’s specialization, what is their reputation and what are their greatest strengths? Consider this article your ‘cheat sheet’ to getting those answers you deserve.

What is Their Specialization?

When finding the right commercial property for your business needs, you don’t just want anyone to assist you in that process—you want the right one. When you know what you’re looking for (areas of the city, budget, square footage needs, lease terms, etc.) would a ‘one size fits all’ broker do the trick? Probably not. You want a broker who is highly skilled in the market(s) that you need to thrive. At GreenEfficient®, we are a highly knowledgeable, Texas-certified broker who believes in giving you the maximum financial benefit possible.

What is Their Reputation?

When considering a commercial real estate broker, ask yourself what their reputation is. If you don’t, you just may be forced to ask yourself: “Why did I choose him? Choosing the right broker is like choosing the right dentist. If you’re sensitive to pain, you wouldn’t want to choose a dentist that acts, talks and works in a rough manner, would you? No, because it’s likely to result in a painful experience.

GreenEfficient® Management has built its reputation working with organizations all over the world and with one thing in mind: safety delivering efficiency. No matter what broker you may choose, ask yourself how their work has affected those they’ve worked for. Has your potential broker added to their clients lives in a positive or negative way?

What Are Your Broker’s Strongest Attributes?

As any decision in life goes that you’ll need to make, you know that nothing—and no one—is perfect. The only question you have to ask yourself is: “What’s the best possible broker for my needs, and how do the positives and negatives ultimately weight out?” Does your broker have experience with the kind of commercial property you’re interested in? Do they have a history of delivering results? Does he respond quickly to your emails, and have a sense of your concerns—and respond to them appropriately? Is your broker thoughtful, honest and thorough?

The right commercial office broker doesn’t have to be difficult to find, and the process can be enjoyable when you know the right questions to ask. Focus on what really matters in the long run: their specialization, reputation and strong points. The right questions to ask—and responding to their answers are key. Your business depends on it!
