How We Get Paid
We only ever represent the tenant
In a real estate transaction, our compensation is paid in the form of a commission. Virtually every lease or sale has built-in commissions for the brokers involved in the transaction. This is very similar to a residential transaction. If the tenant is not represented by a broker, the landlord's listing agent will generally claim the entire commission for themselves. If, however, the tenant is represented, the listening agent shares the commission with the tenant's broker. As a result, tenants should retain the services of a broker to represent their interests. Our compensation is paid for in the form of a commission that is already being paid to the Landlord's agent. That commission is shared between the agents. Our contract states that you will not receive an invoice for our services.
In most cases, going without representation simply results in a larger commission for the landlord's agent. We don't work for your Landlord or represent your building.
