There network and relationships in the commercial real estate industry are what allows them to help quickly find what you’re looking for at the right budget. Some people might argue against that and say that all they have to do is go to Google and find a commercial property listing site and they have all the tools that a professional has.

Going back to those relationships and the networks that a commercial program has, they can typically find properties that have not made it known to those listing sites at all. Just like the concept of the hidden job market, the job market where jobs are not marketed on popular websites or classifieds but instead are staffed via word-of-mouth, there’s a hidden commercial real estate market as well.

How does one find a quality commercial property broker?
Many people might gleefully raise your hand and answer Google. Typically in our world, Google is the right answer to the majority of the questions that we have. Google being able to help us find just about anything that we need. There is no doubt that you will find many commercial real estate brokers for Google but how do you know if there any good or not? Just because their professionals doesn’t mean that they are good at what they do. This is true in every industry, you have companies who are good, companies who are average and those who are pretty bad.
We obviously are looking for the good and great companies. So finding a quality company takes a lot more than just doing a Google search. Instead, it takes learning a little bit about a commercial brokers reputation. Reputation being this constant thing that we write about in each and every one of these articles. Always labeling reputation as King. Reputation is King because it comes from clients and not the companies themselves.
What is the power of it coming from a customer and not the company? The power comes from it not being the advertisement, not being marketed, it not being a self-generated narrative that a company creates. Instead, it is based on the real-life experience of customers and clients of these companies. So researching and finding information on reputation means finding information based on testimony, ratings, and reviews. Google can provide these things as well and these are the things that you need to pay the most attention to. Paying attention to reputation ultimately help you find a very competent company.
Beyond competence there something else that is even more important, or should we say equally important, and that is customer service and how they relate to you. Although a company might be skilled in what they do, if they cannot communicate well they don’t offer quality customer service, and they likely are not going to be enjoyable to use. This ultimately is a communication-based industry and those who communicate the best will have the best reputation. So after finding a company who meets the skill and competency attribute that you’re looking for, you then have to make that people connection.
