But a little thought quickly reveals how badly misinformed this notion really is. Still, if you’re going to generalize, it’s better to classify industrial real estate agents and brokers in two ways – the problem solvers and the order takers.

12 Keys to Improving Your Commercial Property’s Online Visibility0

Posted by Thomas Miller, CCIM

Tech-SavvyWhen people are looking for something, we turn to the Internet. It’s the way of the world these days, and this tendency to look online includes commercial real estate. There’s a wealth of information online about finding the right agent, why the DIY route to buying or leasing commercial property is usually more trouble that it’s worth, and for finding properties themselves.

Today, we’re explaining what that identical service is, and the 12 keys to improving your commercial property’s online visibility.Read more →

Negotiating Your Own Industrial Real Estate Lease is a Mistake0

Posted by Thomas Miller, CCIM

miller-industrial-properties-renewing-commerical-lease-2018There are many misconceptions about industrial real estate – our seven-part series on persistent industrial real estate myths tackles many of them – but one of the biggest is the idea that a business owner will save both time and money by managing their own property search and ensuing negotiations. At face value, all you need to do is look online, drive around a bit to see what’s out there, find a property that looks good, call the listing agent, and negotiate the terms. Sounds simple enough. Unfortunately, this simplified, and frankly rosy, take on the process fails to account for the many, many variables that inevitably arise. It’s those variables that make negotiating your own industrial real estate lease a mistake. Read more →

What to Expect – And What Not to Expect – From Industrial Real Estate Agents0

Posted by Thomas Miller, CCIM

miller-industrial-properties-tenant-riskTom Miller, the president of Miller Industrial Properties, drove a race car with a professional team for years.
