Gale & Hortensia - Technically, you don’t have to hire a broker to work to find you a location as a tenant. Usually (but not always), a landlord already has a place on the market and a commission is already going to be paid to the agent representing the tenant. This makes using a broker free - similar to using a broker to help you buy a home or a commercial property. You may come across a location that does not offer your broker compensation. In those scenarios - which happen, but not very commonly – you can work out a deal with the broker beforehand. Feel free to contact me with any questions since I work in the local market.

Absolutely, that is the best way to go especially if you are not that familiar with leases, it's always good to have an attorney review any lease you enter into prior to signing as well.
