Picking your real estate broker for your CRE journey is a big deal. You want to make sure you partner with a team who understands what you want and will help boost you to success. You may not even know the characteristics to look for in a promising real estate broker. Following are some questions that will help you figure out if a real estate agent is right for you.
What Geographic Areas Are You Familiar With?
You should ensure that the areas you’re potentially looking into are areas that your broker is also familiar with. If they know the specific area, they will help you make the right choice of which property to pick because they’ll have insight on the areas and how well your specific business venture would fare in each location.
Do You Have Any Specialties?
If you’re looking to invest in an office space, it’s best to partner with someone who specializes in office space. Regardless of the type of property you’re looking for, you should select a broker based on their specialties. Perhaps they focus on just one, or are well-versed and impressively experienced in all eight areas of CRE property. Either way, make sure whatever property type you’re looking into, your broker is a pro at.
Can You Discuss Some of Your Previous Successes?
Knowing how your potential broker pushed through hard times or tough situations to perform for their clients speaks volumes on their abilities. Don’t hold back from digging deep and understand what would or wouldn’t make them a fitting broker for you. Hearing what they’ve done for other clients can give you insight on how they can help you.
What’s Your Strategy For My Property Plan?
You need to know that your potential future broker sees a clear vision for how they’ll help your commercial business flourish. Getting a sneak peak of what they would actually do once they become your broker would allow you to assess if they seem qualified or helpful enough.
