What do you do for me?
Well, that's a good question. We work as your (tenant) broker. It is our job to find space(s) that suit you, negotiate the deal and get you to a lease. We don't get paid until after a lease is signed so it's in our best interests to work as efficiently as possible. We are essentially at your service. Our fiduciary duties are to you, and we take that very seriously. You can ask us anything about the NYC market and we will give you all we can!
But can't I do this myself?
You can cut your own hair, you can wire your own electric, but does that mean you should? Sure, you can attempt to navigate NYC commercial space without us, but we promise you it will be a million times easier with us on your side. This is what we do. While we are humble, we don;t mind saying that we have lots of knowledge, insight and experience in the NYC commercial market and can save you time and headaches, usually at no charge to you!
Should I work with one broker? Or should I call a lot?
Well, this is your decision, however, in the commercial side of real estate, most listings are “open,” meaning the listing agent will co-broke it with other brokers. It is highly advisable to have a tenant representative when signing for an office. It usually comes at no cost to you and is helpful in navigating the market, getting the best deal, and the entire lease process.
Keep in mind, brokers don't get paid until/unless you sign a lease, so it's in our best interests to work as hard as possible to make that happen. Also keep in mind, we only get paid if you do that and so if you are to call/work with multiple brokers, it is generally not the best use of your time (or ours for that matter). You shouldn't rule out shopping/looking around, but any broker worth their salt will show you space that fits and make the best use of your time. Here at Conrad, we make it our business to find your space, so you can focus on your business.
Who pays Conrad Real Estate's fee?
95% of the time, the Landlord pays the tenant's broker. However there are certain LL's out there who won't pay a fee or occasions when we have to collect a fee from you the tenant as well as the landlord (short term leases, low payouts etc.). This will be made clear to you based on your criteria prior to any search etc.
