Having access to a broader range of listings provides a significant advantage for buyers and tenants when searching for a commercial lease or investment property. The value lies in the increased opportunities to find a property that perfectly aligns with their specific preferences, requirements, and budget. A larger pool of listings means more choices, allowing buyers and tenants to explore diverse options and select a property that best suits their needs.


One key benefit is the ability to compare multiple properties, enabling individuals and businesses to make more informed decisions. With a wide array of listings, buyers and tenants can assess various features, amenities, and price points, facilitating a comprehensive evaluation of the market. This comparative analysis empowers tenants and buyers alike to identify the most suitable property based on their priorities, whether it be location, size, amenities, or other crucial factors.


Access to an extensive range of listings also promotes competitive pricing and negotiation opportunities. Buyers and tenants can leverage the availability of multiple options to negotiate more favorable terms with sellers or landlords. This dynamic marketplace encourages a fair and transparent negotiation process, ensuring that parties involved can reach agreements that benefit both sides.


Furthermore, a diverse selection of listings enhances the likelihood of discovering hidden gems or properties that may have been overlooked in a more limited search. Buyers and tenants may find unique opportunities that meet their specific criteria but were not initially on their radar. This broad exposure to available properties enriches the overall property search experience, turning it into a discovery process that goes beyond conventional choices. partners with Lendio to make capital more accessible for small businesses.

What’s The Most Important Service a Broker Can Provide a Tenant?

In order to better understand how closely brokers’ and tenants’ expectations aligned, we decided to ask the following question: What is the most important service a broker can provide a tenant?

Check out the responses below to see the top answers provided by both sides. You might be surprised to see the differences in the feedback we got.

What is the most important service a broker can provide a tenant?

Top broker responses:

Broker Replies.png


  • Market knowledge: 21% of responses
  • Locating a space that meets their needs: 15% of responses
  • Good communication/Timeliness: 13% of responses
  • Accuracy: 12% of responses
  • Lease negotiations: 10% of responses
  • Honesty: 7% of responses
  • CRE knowledge/ advice: 6% of responses

Top tenant responses:

Tenant Replies.png


  • Good communication/Timeliness: 37% of responses
  • Locating a space that meets their needs: 15% of responses
  • Helping them get a good deal: 12% of responses
  • Honesty: 8% of responses
  • Market knowledge: 6% of responses
  • Negotiation skills: 5% of responses
  • Access to hard-to-find listings: 4% of responses

What conclusions can we draw from this?

Market knowledge may not be the most important attribute for a broker from the tenant’s perspective. While this was the number one response from brokers, less than 2% of tenant responses had market knowledge listed as most important broker service.

The second most popular response from brokers was locating a space that meets the tenant’s needs.  Tenants too felt that this was important, and it was a match for second place.  There’s really no surprise here, this is a universal expectation.  

Good and timely communication from brokers is essential for tenants, making this attribute the number one ranked response from tenants with 37% of the responses. Only 13% of brokers marked this as the most important attribute, ranking it the third most popular attribute among broker responses.

Tenants want to get a good deal, and they expect their brokers to help. This answer seems like a no-brainer, so we were surprised that there was a bit of a mismatch between the two groups. For tenants, this was listed in their top three responses. For brokers, this came in as the 12th most popular response with only a small percentage falling this category. We could dive into the differences of responses between landlord representative brokers and tenant representative brokers, and hopefully we would see a difference. However, if we take this at face value, brokers who leverage this attribute could have a big opportunity to attract new clients. 

Tell us what you think! Is this feedback different from what you had expected?

How Are Tenants Searching for Office Space?

Finding your first office space can be one of the most exciting, yet nerve-wracking experiences. The team here at has interacted with millions of tenants who have been in the same position.

This is why in an effort to shed some light on the process, we recently surveyed tenants about their search experience. Part of what we found out was what we expected, while some responses took us by surprise. Here’s a look at what tenants shared with us about their CRE search experience.

How much time did you spend researching commercial real estate leasing online prior to connecting with a broker?

Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 2.27.52 PM.png

When asked how much time they spent researching CRE leasing online prior to connecting with a broker, almost have of our respondents (45%) selected “within days”.

How many brokers did you reach out to before selecting one to work with?

Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 2.36.30 PM.png

Over half of our participants (54%) also revealed that they had not yet selected a broker to work with yet. Of those who did, 32% said they reached out to 2 to 5 different brokers before selecting one.

If you have not yet selected a broker, where are you now with your space search?

Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 2.33.41 PM.png

For those who had not yet selected a broker, 33% had told us that they decided to look for space on their own when asked where they currently were with their space search. 11% of the 33% who decided to look on their own also reported that brokers had not responded to their initial inquiries, so there wasn’t much choice.

How many spaces did you see, or plan on seeing, during your search?

Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 2.30.09 PM.png

In regards to space searches, we also asked how many spaces they’ve seen or planned on seeing during their search. More than half (54%) said between 2 to 5.

Do you have a preference for working with a tenant representative’s broker or a landlord’s representative’s broker to help you find a space?

Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 2.32.01 PM.png

When asked if they had a preference to work with the landlord’s broker or a tenant representative’s broker, 37% of our respondents did not know the difference between the two.  The majority of tenants did not have a preference (44%) while 14% preferred to work specifically with a tenant representative’s broker and 6% preferred to work with the landlord’s broker.

Did you end up signing a lease with the broker you decided to work with?

Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 2.32.19 PM.png

Finally, over 66% of tenants said that they did not sign a lease with the broker they initially selected to work with. When we asked for their reasons, 50% had to do with a negative experience with their broker, 26% of the tenants had a change in circumstances in their situation and 18% were still looking for the right space.

We would love to hear from tenants and brokers on our research. Does this information surprise you or is it what you would have expected?
