Understand of course that there is NO standard - each and every party to a transaction is free to negotiate commission structure for the particular deal at hand. In the Texas market - prevailing commercial lease transactions typically pay 4.5% of the lease amount to the broker rep for the tenant. Of course - that is based on the listing agent and the owner having negotiated that amount and then that amount being offered to tenant rep agents. This amount may vary from region to region, company to company, deal to deal.
