Why should my organization use a Tenant Representative?
It is important to remember that any broker listed on a property has a responsibility to represent the interests of the landlord, and as such a tenant that is unrepresented will undoubtedly be left with terms disproportionately favoring the landlord. Conversely, Tenant Representatives work for you, the business tenant. They handle every facet of your search for space and will negotiate terms that favor your interests and will save your business money. This service does not cost you a penny, as the tenant representative derives compensation from the eventual landlord.
Why SVN | Cornerstone Commerical?
We purposefully choose to make Tenant Representation the primary focus of our brokerage services, as landlords provide such a disproportionately larger percentage of a traditional real estate company’s revenue that it would be difficult not to favor their interests. We always want to keep your interests as our primary focus. Just as attorneys and other fiduciaries are careful to avoid conflicts-of-interest because it is universally acknowledged to have a negative impact on the vigor with which they approach advocacy on behalf of their clients, so too do we avoid any representation that would create a conflict with tenant representation.
How do Tenant Representatives (Tenant Brokers) get paid?
NOT by the tenant! Commercial real estate brokers receive a commission based on the lease value; however, this fee is paid 100% by the Landlord. Through the help of a broker, tenants can visit potential properties, negotiate, and close a lease all at the expense of their future Landlord.
