Thanks for the great discussion. I am a new member but following the page for quite a while. I am not in the market (q3 2020 lease ending) but i would bet it’s safe to assume when engaging a broker, for the best possible experience would be for me to pay the broker fee upfront. Even if I can’t get the deal today, a broker would be on the lookout for the right transaction when timing is right. It’s only logical!
