Why Use a Commercial Real Estate Broker?

Looking for industrial commercial real estate (CRE) space for your company?  You could start by pulling your phone out of your pocket and searching “commercial industrial space Dallas” while you eat lunch between meetings and conference calls.   That specific search yields 19.6 million results on google.com right now.  With results ranging from craigslist, loopnet and CoStar, the links are endless.  Combine that with some links hiding key property information behind a paywall, searching for industrial space in Dallas can feel overwhelming navigating through the Nation’s fourth large industrial market of nearly 900 million square feet.

Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you could delegate the chore of locating your next business home to someone who has access to all of that hidden information, piles of market data and is held to a license standard regulated by the State of Texas?  That person is out there working as a commercial real estate agent.  Here’s the best part:  As a Tenant or Buyer, it doesn’t cost you a dime to use us.  Landlord’s and Seller’s pay CRE firms directly as a commission for completed transactions.  The costs to pay a CRE Broker are included in to the lease and sale numbers we quote you.

Our sole job is to find the space that is right for you, advise you through purchase contracts, leases and title documents to ensure you are completely satisfied in your new location so you can get
