The Importance of a Financial Analyst When Building Your Brokerage

Effective work in commercial real estate demands the attention of experts from a wide range of specialties. More and more brokers are finding that it’s very efficient to assemble a team that’s ready to tackle projects as they arise, and that shares a common plan and mission. Working together in an established relationship allows a brokerage team, whether it’s made up of two agents who work well together or a larger team, to provide exceptionally efficient customer value. Teams with a clear structure and shared goals can really knock it out of the park.

[Case Study] Aron Susman | TheSquareFoot

TheSquareFoot is a technology enabled commercial real estate brokerage serving the space needs of businesses across the country. Businesses can search for office space and then connect with TheSquareFoot’s brokerage team to tour spaces, get questions answered, and walk through the leasing process.

Each broker at TheSquareFoot is working with 15-20 clients at any given time so they knew right away they needed a powerful CRM to organize data and keep track of deals. TheSquareFoot has been using Apto since 2013, and I recently had the opportunity to speak with Aron Susman, the company’s Co-founder & Chief Financial Officer, about how Apto is used in their brokerage business.
