I’m talking about a commercial real estate broker, not a life partner, but the decision process can actually be quite similar. Commercial real estate is a major financial commitment and investment; having the right broker on your side from the get-go is essential.
So how do you know which broker will be the best for you? Much like dating, one of the best resources is friends and colleagues. Ask business owners you trust who they have dealt with—this will most likely yield some referrals and perhaps some names to stay away from.
