Hello Rebecca,
It sounds like you have had a bad experience with another agent or broker. I apologise for that. Unfortunately, in commercial real estate there is no governing body that oversees the ethics and practices of agents and Brokers, such as in residential real estate. Its unfortunate, however there are many great agents and brokers out there. You do not necessarily need a broker however since brokers is really only a title and does not reflect or indicate a persons knowledge and experience in most cases. All you need is someone with a ton of experience in both the financing and the real estate side of things. Someone who can analyze cashflows, annualized returns, and cap rates, etc. and make recomendations on what cap rate therefore price you should buy the building for. I am not in Martinez, CA but in my experience, when it comes to commercial real estate, it is all about returns as you probably already know. Unfortunately, I can not recomend anyone in Martinez but I would certainly recomend you qualify the agent based on their knowledge and experience. I know that commercial real estate transactions are often done by out of town agents since most of the info are online nowadays. This might be an option you might consider. Should you feel the need to talk to me, please feel free to call me a t 619 957 4663

There are many agents that are good at what they do within their specific product type. Someone claiming to be an expert in every aspect of commercial investments is most likely not honest. Look for someone with a long track record selling whatever you're planning to sell or buy, with endorsements/recommendations from their clients. ALL good agents have this in their packages and if they dont have anything to support their verbal claims...RUN!!! GL
