It is common in broker negotiations that after youíve gotten all the facts together about a commercial real estate deal, youíre going to want to contact the seller somehow to propose a deal. This is often met with a certain level of hesitance on the brokerís side, but if you approach it in the right manner, you can convince the broker to let you contact the seller directly. Brokerís like to maintain their position as the middle man at all times, so youíll have to jump over a slight hurdle to get to a point that you can work with the seller on your own. Here are a few tips that may help you out along the wayÖ

Chances are that you arenít going to be able to speak with the seller by yourself no matter what, so be prepared for a meeting or phone call with both the broker and the seller. During broker negotiations, simply state that you have all the facts that you need and that youíd like to schedule some sort of contact with the seller in the near future. Propose a time for the discussion and see if it works for everybodyís schedule. Be a little flexible to their time needs and try to work around their needs so you can seal the deal better.

Donít forget to invite the broker to participate in the call with the seller so that he or she doesnít feel like you are trying to sneak behind his or her back. If the broker rejects the idea of you coming in contact with the seller, simply remind him of how much faster a deal can go that way. Otherwise, the broker has to converse back and forth between both parties, which takes up a lot of time and causes a lot of information to get lost in translation.

If you position it right during broker negotiations youíll get the opportunity to talk directly with the seller and end up with a big advantage. Sellers are often easier to deal with and you have the advantage of proposing the deal instead of having a broker attempt to do it for you and potentially mess the deal up. When you ask them direct questions, youíll get a lot of quick yes or no answers. They probably wonít ask you anything in return until much later along the road, after the deal is already set in place. Do your best to work with the broker to allow you to contact the seller directly as it will most certainly lead to the smoothest deal possible.
