There are many factors in which commercial real estate agents/coordinators are differentiated from salespeople entering the real estate profession with limited business experience. These differentiations start with the assumption that "sales and negotiations" are the result of agents creating meetings of the minds between the buyers and the sellers with a focus upon the fiduciary responsibilities being balanced with a responsibility to all parties involved. As licensed Real Estate Professionals we have a responsibility to go beyond the call of duty for the customer and principal. Ask not what the client and principal can do for the agent, but ask what can the agent do for the customer, the principal, and other agents involved in the real estate transaction.
When a client inquires about a commercial property, that client is not looking to be sold. The client is looking to be taken on a tour of a property or business opportunity. That property will be their focus and eventually an extension of themselves or their corporate identity. Therefore the "about me" becomes "about you" so that you, the client, can be taken on a tour of whatever properties and opportunities that you or your investment group are interested in exploring.
When the client decides to market their property, they are treated with the respect and honesty necessary to nurture and develop a fiduciary relationship that will allow the agent to serve and protect their best interests. Louis is an expert in creating research-driven strategies that are focused on maximizing the upside potential of every transaction, from office and residential properties to retail properties and raw land development opportunities.
