Hopefully when we’ve met for the first time, we have also been able to chat enough that I have an idea of the types of property my customer is looking for.  If so, then I will have scheduled 2-3 properties for us to go see that I have found fitting for the customer’s criteria. 

Before we leave to see those properties, I will go over the Buyer/Tenant Representation Agreement.
