Accelerate Your Career in Commercial Real Estate

Office and industrial realtors work in a fast-pace environment, with vast opportunities for career advancement and growth potential, and diverse career options.

A real estate broker is a person who acts as an intermediary between sellers and buyers of real estate. Brokers typically receive a payment called a commission for successfully matching a seller’s real estate with a buyer, resulting in a successful sales transaction. Brokers and their salespersons who assist in marketing, selling, or leasing properties are commonly called “listing brokers” or “listing agents.” Listing brokers and agents seek to market, sell, or lease the property for the highest available price under the best available terms. The buyers of income-producing properties sometimes hire commercial brokers to find prospective properties for purchase and to negotiate acquisitions.

Brokers who achieve the highest levels of success and adhere to rigorous professional standards belong to the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors® (SIOR), representing the world’s elite in industrial and office brokerage. They are the most trusted resource in commercial real estate. SIORs are held to the highest standard by completing thorough requirements and proving excellence in securing successful transactions. SIOR is more than a designation, it’s a symbol of excellence.
