Can any Realtor sell & buy Commercial real estate?
Even though, there is no specific requirement in Ontario for the real estate brokers/agents to have any additional training in Commercial real estate to be able to help their clients with commercial or investment real estate, prior experience in that field is very important. According to OREA, only 1/4 to 1/3 of all registered salespeople have participated in a commercial transaction in their career. Most of the residential realtors prefer to refer their clients for a commercial transaction. Working in Commercial real estate requires higher than average competency in Math, Law, complex paperwork among other qualities.To conclude, the short answer is YES, but the question of the ability of the agent to do what best for the client still stands.
