Zurple specializes in helping real estate agents generate real estate leads online, and nurture them through the home buying and home selling process. When we speak about agents, we are always referring to the residential side of the business. What about the agents out there that also dabble in commercial properties?
Today’s question is:
What do you do if one of your investors wants to do commercial real estate too?
Here are a few possible answers:
Refer a commercial real estate agent
You are a professional, and as a professional it is perfectly fine to turn down business that you don’t specialize in. It is in the best interest of an investor to use another agent in this case.
Find a Commercial Mentor
If you truly would like to put your hand in the commercial cookie jar, perhaps find another agent that can help guide you.
Check with Your Brokerage
Some states won’t allow you to do commercial real estate unless you hold a CREL designation. You connect with one of the agents at your brokerage who does. Partnering up with another agent can still grant you a good paycheck.
Get a Commercial Partner
Becoming a residential real estate agent is easily a full-time job. The world of commercial real estate is the same. Find an agent that you can partner with to trade residential and commercial referrals.
