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.
