What is a representation letter and should I sign one?

A representation letter is something a tenant rep broker will ask you to sign. It has several purposes. First and foremost, it demonstrates your commitment. Once the tenant rep broker has that letter from you, they know that are much more likely to get paid a commission on your lease. This means that they will work hard for you. In fact, a good tenant rep broker will not do much more than a simple market survey without a signed letter. If you want to get the most out of the brokerage community, we recommend that you sign an exclusive agreement rather that working with several different agents on a non-exclusive basis.
