11. Your broker has experience.
Negotiating leases is a very complex task. When you’re attempting to navigate this confusing landscape, you can’t afford to go it alone. Nothing can replace the value of having a broker with years of experience.
Sure…you might be able to find some possibilities for office space on your own. You can do this either by looking online or driving around town checking out all the “for sale” signs. But you only get specialized insights into these properties from an experienced broker.
His value isn’t only in discovering the possibilities. It’s also in helping you understand how each one fits in with your particular needs. With his specialized expertise, you’ll be less likely to get trapped in a nightmare of a deal.
12. A good broker makes sure that things go well even after negotiations end.
A good broker will stay with you to make sure your transition from the lease signing to the move-in will be a smooth one.
Negotiations for office build-outs can be complex and exhausting. If you’re expecting you’re going to need a build-out in your new space, hire a broker who has lots of experience with them.
He’ll serve as the go-between between you and your landlord’s construction manager. By doing this, he'll be able to handle any unforeseen circumstances. And his connection with you doesn’t end after you’re all moved in.
Even after the patients start to come in, he’ll continue to reach out to you to make sure everything is okay.
