When searching for Chicago office space, there are a few simple things you should look for in a broker.
Listens to You

Offers Multiple Choices
The best brokers are those who show you multiple choices. They might take you on tours of dozens of properties and show you multiple neighborhoods across the city to get a feel for what you want and need. Good brokers will also listen to your comments about each property and use your feedback to find better properties,
No Hidden Fees
Another thing to look for in a commercial broker is someone who want charge you hidden fees. Many brokers only accept payment once you sign a lease or agree to buy, and some only charge the sellers or landlords fees and not the buyers and renters. A broker who listens to you, doesn’t charge hidden fees and offers multiple choices is sure to find you the best office space.
