A few weeks ago we wrote an article explaining what mixed-use developments and how they benefit their tenants, whether commercial or residential. Here, we list key considerations for brokers who are looking to help their clients lease a space in such a development. 

Understanding Tenant Needs

As a tenant-focused broker, it’s critically important that you have a deep understanding of your clients’ needs and preferences. Whether they’re seeking office space or retail storefronts within a mixed-use development, tailoring your services to match their requirements is the most important aspect of the service you provide.


Building strong relationships with developers, property owners and other stakeholders involved in mixed-use projects can open doors to new opportunities for your clients. Collaborating with like-minded professionals and staying on top of industry trends can give you a competitive advantage over other brokerages. 

Educating Clients 

Many tenants may be unfamiliar with the concept of mixed-use developments or unsure of its benefits. As their real estate consultant and trusted advisor, it’s your role to educate them about the advantages of these developments and help them envision how they can achieve business success within such communities.

Staying Informed

The landscape of mixed-use developments is constantly evolving, with new projects emerging and innovative concepts reshaping the way we live, work, and play. Stay informed about the latest developments, market trends, and regulatory changes to provide informed guidance to your clients.

In conclusion, mixed-use developments represent a shift in how tenants interact with commercial real estate, offering a comprehensive take on urban living and working. As tenant-focused brokers, embracing this evolution and leveraging the opportunities it presents can position you as a trusted advisor and invaluable resource for your clients.
