It is likely your question has not been answered, as it is illegal under anti-trust laws to quote any kind of standard commission rate for real estate activity.
There are many variations of leasing commission rates that can be used in a contract with a client.
The determining factor will be: How likely does the client believe you can deliver a lease that will benefit his or her property? How valuable is that lease to him in terms of adding to his NOI, thus to the value of the property?
When these questions are answered you may secure a commission with the client that matches his or her sense of worth for your service.
Be confident and clear in the reason your commission is fair with regard to the professionalism you bring to your work. Doing so with a fair minded client, will end up in a compatible agreement, which is what every good business relationship seeks.
Onward and Upward....
