You Shouldn’t Skip Out on Having a Professional Commercial Real Estate Agent on Your Team--Here’s Why

Technology is redefining real estate in every way. Online tools make shopping, buying, and selling easier and more accessible than ever. In today’s market, people often wonder if they can’t just navigate through this process on their own without professional help.

It’s a valid question. But while flying solo can work out for some people, for many, it’s not the wisest move. The majority of people who try to take matters into their own hands meet difficult situations and struggle, encountering issues that could have been prevented working with a seasoned commercial real estate agent (CRE).

Let’s explore why having a commercial real estate agent is invaluable--especially in Los Angeles. 

Knowledge, Experience, and Expertise 

Working with a professional brings you into a completely different scope of possibilities. An agent is a quintessential aspect of any real estate transaction since they act as your guide and consultant throughout the entire process. Professional agents are trained to navigate the full spectrum of LA’s market, making sure you get the best deal possible. 

Experienced agents have navigated these deals time and time again, so they’ve developed specialized methods and honed a vital skillset. With an agent, there’s no such thing as hitting a wall--they’ll be able to skillfully respond to any situation, whereas someone working without an agent may get stuck. The knowledge possessed by an agent is an indispensable aspect that any real estate endeavor needs. 

Listing Opportunities 

Although anyone may be able to post their property listing on common online websites, they’re missing out on the exposure that a commercial real estate agent can provide. In the commercial real estate world, there are a variety of different listing platforms to accommodate the abundance of transaction types. 

Many of these platforms aren’t open to the public, so you wouldn’t even know about them to begin with. Agents invest money to gain access into these portals so they can browse all the most recent information as well as post their clients’ listings. 


No matter what industry you’re working in, it’s important to know the right people. Since your agent will have been engaged in LA’s business scene, they’re bound to know the who’s-who of the commercial real estate world. By working with an agent, you gain access to their extensive network of connections.

Agents are constantly in contact with a number of people who can help in surprising ways. Whether your agent is informed about an upcoming listing before it’s advertised or spreading the word about your newly posted property, you have the opportunity to gain greater exposure than you would on your own. 

Agents can even provide aid on deeper levels; for instance, they may be able to contact local politicians about specific property regulations or location zoning or find an outside source to fund a loan. Your agent’s resources can help make your aspirations a reality.
