A career in commercial real estate brokerage can be very rewarding.  In saying that, a good degree of planning, research, and effort is required to achieve reasonable results over time.  Every broker should have a plan to work to and that plan should be refined from tracking results and actions.

Commercial Real Estate Snapshot Podcast 225 – A Focus on Commercial Real Estate Leasing

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
