For tenant reps, you have clients that expect to go on tours next week. And you have to be prepared. You need to know what spaces are available. The details of the property. Market comps.

I spent this past week in Colorado studying for the Colorado Broker’s Exam. One of the little fun facts about running a commercial real estate website is that we have to be licensed in every state in order to receive referral fees. So here I am in Colorado, studying away.
I have severe insomnia. Specifically, delayed sleep phase syndrome. Which basically means that, like a teenager, my body actually prefers to stay up really late and wake up really late.
