Quality questions in commercial real estate brokerage will help you get to the real client motivators. Through asking better questions you will also be able to find the next new business opportunity across sales, leasing, and property management.
So what can you ask about? Sometimes we look at a single property issue and forget about the side issues such as:
A referral opportunity
A future leasing need
A tenant mix challenge
Ways to improve a property investment
How to grow a property portfolio
How to resolve a vacancy factor
So there is information here that can be worked on with your clients and prospects. The questions that you ask will help you see the next stage of how you can work with a client and convert the business.
Listen to the audio and pick up on the key message of asking good questions in Commercial Real Estate.
Its the time of year where we can still create some real momentum in the property market. There is still some 2 months of opportunity and transactions to be sourced. As you focus on that idea, understand and remember that how you work through the next 2 months will impact the way in which you start 2015. 🙂
I have put 4 audio programs in this recording below. All different topics, but all very relevant to what we should be doing in the property market today.
Here are the topics:
The 3 common mistakes that most agents make, and how to avoid the problems.
Why you should think about your ‘opening statements’ as you work with new clients and prospects.

In this podcast I thought I should spend some time focusing on Commercial Real Estate Leasing. That is for a number of reasons, the most important of which is that property leasing introduces you to the landlords and property owners who will eventually need more help in the future with things like sales and property management. In other words a simple lease transaction can lead to other things.
I have split the audio program up into a number of segments. The summaries of the program are below:
Why you should not let your tenants get out of control – in any property containing a group of tenants, the communication and control process is very important. Tenants talk to other tenants and that can be a problem if issues exist in the building. So this is all about those buildings with multiple occupants and how to connect with them.
How you can be a commercial real estate leasing expert – you can do so much with your leasing knowledge. You can establish tenant advocacy services, landlord leasing services, tenant mix advice, and basis brokerage leasing. What sections of the leasing market can you see reasonable leverage and commission activity evolving from? This part of the audio program will help you with ideas.
How to work with franchise tenants and why that is a good idea – the franchise section of the commercial property market today is forever evolving and growing. If you connect regularly with local franchise groups you can help them with property selection choices and any required relocation’s. Get to know a few franchise tenants locally and come to understand what they need by way of property and when that is likely to occur.
Some simple ideas for qualifying industrial property tenants – the industrial part of the property market is generally the first to respond in an upturn and also a downturn. That being said it is a reasonably uncomplicated part of the industry. Get to know a number of industrial tenants and businesses locally; see if you can help them with current and future property needs.
