“Yes,” and here’s why:

Adam J. Tarantur, CCIM, Principal

Building owners are well represented when negotiating a lease, purchase or sale — you should be, too.

Whether they employ their own agents or retain a third-party brokerage firm, landlords have professionals dedicated to representing their best interests. You should have your own advocate.

Benefits of working with a seasoned broker representative include:

Individualized Attention: Your organization is unique. Each building and each space you consider operating within also has its own unique characteristics. As a result, the techniques involved in completing a real estate transaction satisfactory to you differ in each case. Your real estate professional will work one-on-one with you and your team to tailor the process to your exact specifications, from conception to completion.

Strategic Outlook: Every business evolves. Your real estate must evolve with it. Growth, market share, restructuring and logistics all affect your real estate needs. Your relationship with your real estate broker does not end when the lease or contract is signed. In fact, the opposite should be true. A relationship-based broker is available at any time to provide advice and market intelligence, and to proffer potential solutions. In fact, your broker may be aware of opportunities that you did not even know existed.

Experience: Like anything else, real estate negotiation is an expertise honed through repetition and experience. It is an art, not a science. A veteran broker can leverage years of knowledge and skill to ensure optimal results.

No Cost: Most landlords and sellers expect the tenant or buyer to be represented by a real estate professional. Having your own advocate will not adversely impact the economics of your transaction. In fact, with the skill brought to the negotiating table, the economics of the deal will likely work out in your favor.

KEY POINTS:
  • Protect your interests: You know your business. Your situation requires the unique abilities of an experienced advocate.
  • Expand your options & pinpoint your opportunities: A qualified representative will combine up-to-date market information with his/her own experience in order to present the best options available.
  • Short & long term benefits: Next to securing the optimal space, the most important part of a real estate transaction is obtaining the optimum deal for that space. Having your own advocate makes the process easier for you in the short term and will continue to provide benefits for the long term.
