THE BENEFITS OF A BOUTIQUE BROKERAGE
When choosing a commercial real estate agent, many companies choose
to go with a larger, nation-wide brokerage. While those brokerages
do have several advantages, such as name recognition and large
teams, they are not always the best choice.
Jack Holler Commercial Real Estate is a boutique brokerage, offering
several advantages that larger brokerages don’t:
More personal attention – Rather
than dividing our time amongst hundreds of clients, our agents
typically maintain a roster of less than 10 clients at any one time.
This allows us to give you the dozens (or hundreds) of hours that your transaction
requires without having you queue up behind other clients. Your transaction requires
immediate attention, and we are here to provide that. You will always receive
prompt replies to your questions and instructions, as well as the hard work
that you deserve.
All clients treated equally – Most
large brokerages are primarily interested in whales: the larger,
deals. This usually results
in smaller clients being treated like second-class citizens, then falling
through the cracks. At JHCRE, we pride ourselves in treating
all clients and transactions – from
1,000sf to 1,000,000sf – equally.
Single point of contact – While
our agents utilize the services of other commercial real estate
(such as appraisers, inspectors, attorneys,
etc), you will always deal directly with your dedicated agent. You will
never be shuffled around to less experienced assistants
or different agents within
BENEFITS OF USING AN EXCLUSIVE AGENT
Agents at Jack Holler
Commercial Real Estate work on a 30-day exclusive agency basis.
This means that we guarantee to work hard for you (and not charge
you anything) on the condition that you recognize us as your exclusive
While some business owners believe it to be beneficial to have
multiple agents working for them (and hence against each other),
in fact the opposite is true. When an agent works on a non-exclusive basis,
he/she is generally less motivated to give you the time and dedication
that you require. If there is no guarantee of a commission (from
the landlord/seller), the agent is likely to spend his/her time on other
projects that do include a guarantee of landlord/seller commission.
Most commercial real estate transactions (that are done well) take
between 50 and 200 hours of an agent’s time. Non-exclusive agents
are likely to only give you only 1 or 2 hours. Yes, they could get
lucky for you, but chances are their time will be wasted, and
you’ll never hear from them again.
An exclusive agent should perform as an actual employee and treat
you with the same dedication he/she would to a full-time employer.
Even if you don’t choose JHCRE, we strongly encourage you to work
exclusively with one agent. Rather than spending your time fishing
for multiple agents who will be of questionable quality and
dedication, choose an expert that you know will work
hard for you.
We will be happy to provide you with
references from clients who will testify to the advantages of
using an exclusive agent.
Additionally, JHCRE will send out an e-blast to more than 500
commercial agents across the valley describing your needs. In effect,
we act as your market coverage, single point of contact and
gatekeeper for every broker in the area.
