What Birmingham Commercial Property Agent should I use?
Shepherd Commercial advise which commercial estate agent you should be using in Birmingham
Picking and Choosing
Deciding which commercial estate agent in Birmingham to use can be a difficult and daunting task. Whilst google will undoubtedly return huge multinational agents, they just are not the right fit if you’ve got a niche or smaller property than the likes of Savills and JLL are used to.
Mid-size local agents are by far the much better choice for single property landlords and Birmingham specific owners. Locality runs parallel with area knowledge and combining this with experience and expertise brings a quality service to clients. So how do you go about choosing?
Do some research
Birmingham commercial property agents are definitely not few and far between and there is so many to choose from within the second city. Typically, there is a huge gulf in quality between agents and the best commercial surveying firms stand quite clear of the larger pool of lower quality agents. The single best thing to do is find a reputable, renown and established firm with great reviews and a transparent showcase of previous work and service
Dedicated commercial property agents in Birmingham may provide a more thorough service than mixed residential and commercial agents, although this is not the rule. Our advice would be to speak to a few potential agents and do not be afraid to ask questions about subjects such as accreditation, experience and anything in between. Professional and quality surveyors will not refrain from discussing both their personal experience as agents and the firm in which they act on behalf of.
Check agents stock list
Usually, an agent might not even specialise in your sector of property or even your size of property and needs. Before calling an agent, check their stock list of properties available and see if you can see any clear trends in sectors such as retail, industrial or office. Some agents specialise in the retail sector and might not even be of much assistance, others may only deal with much larger or smaller premises and will suggest other commercial agents.
A great way to check further, visit the commercial property agents ‘About Us’ page, they usually show clients what exactly they carry out for clients and where. We have a dedicated about us page for our Birmingham Commercial Agency.
