A good broker is much more than just a space finder; you should view them as you would your attorney or accountant. You want their advice as to what space is best suited for your business and what are the best terms that the space can be leased for. A good broker will help you in all aspects of the commercial space transaction. That starts with understanding your business and ends with a signed lease. Finding the space is simply one small step in the overall process.
Is finding a space without hiring a broker a good idea? Generally speaking, the answer is no. You as the tenant enter into a lease once every so often. A broker negotiates for space on a daily basis. Would you go into an IRS audit without having your CPA by your side? Same reasoning applies here.
