Many times companies start the real estate process on their own, looking for sites that interest them. They gather information by calling each property and the broker that represents it. Although this may result in the same end goal, it is often times not the most successful and time saving or cost saving method. Forming an exclusive relationship with one broker that will lead this process is very beneficial for a number of reasons.
Similar to using a Realtor to look for and purchase a home, a commercial real estate broker helps clients look for and either rent or purchase office, retail, medical, or industrial space and land. This process is known as tenant representation and is a very common practice for many businesses looking to move, expand, or add additional locations.
