What does it all cost?

Our typical transaction fee is paid by the landlord at no expense to our client.  Most buildings have a listing agent whether they are for sale or lease.  The listing broker typically splits the commission with the tenant/buyer side broker.  Even buildings that appear not to be listed typically call for a commission to the managing partner of the building.  If you choose to engage a building directly it is highly unlikely any savings are there for the landlord to pass on to you.
