Guidance Corporate Realty Advisors act as a Tenant Representative and represent only the corporate users of commercial real estate. We don’t accept listings from Landlords because we strongly believe that working for both Landlords and Tenants creates potential conflicts of interest that may not be readily apparent to a Tenant.
Many commercial real estate brokerages operate as “Full Service” firms. At first glance, this sounds good – what’s wrong with offering a full range of services? – and in fact, this was the way commercial brokers operated for many years. But, Full Service brokers typically represent both Landlords and Tenants.
For example, did you know that a commercial broker (or brokerage firm) may make double the commission amount if a Tenant signs a lease in a building where its broker / brokerage firm also has a listing with the Landord? Will a broker negotiate aggressively on behalf of a Tenant if this broker also has a listing agreement with a building’s Landlord or is soliciting a Landlord’s listing business?
