For example, if something is broken in the unit, the tenant can directly hire someone to fix it rather than waiting for the landlord to find someone to fix it. This is very attractive, as it signals feelings of ownership, and is also good for people who have short patience. Where to Find Triple Net Lease Tenants Most national tenants have a real estate division. If you go to their corporate site and search for “real estate division,” you will find the correct contact person. If you wish, you could even go to a commercial broker like CBRE, JLL, Colliers, and more to find the landlord representative. The broker only gets paid if they find a tenant. The fee can be anywhere from 3 to 6 percent of the lease value.

And of course, you could always try to rent the space out yourself. But I would say after 30 to 60 days, if there’s been no movement, sit down with a broker. Time is money!
