I have a friend who has done very well in Commercial. He just hits the streets and talks to owners. He basically just walks and talks.

Greg, there are a few different sites for commercial listings. I prefer costar.com but loopnet.com is good as well. These are just a couple. We specialize in San Francisco Commercial Real Estate if you would like more information on a specific product type.

Also try CraigsList and IRED.com (International Real Estate Directory). Also, if any of our SF trulia members belong to the CyberSociety, you can do a blast of a client's commercial needs to thousands of practioiners across the U.S. You'd be surprised how many commercial properties are listed with companies of a more global reach.

Greg, I use Loopnet and the MLS to search for commercial properties for my clients. Loopnet lets you search for free (with limitations) or you can pay a monthly membership fee to have unlimited access. If you'd like, you may contact me at my webpage below and I can enter you into my database to receive updated email listings of commercial properties based on the search criteria you provide (property type, lease type if tenant occupied, location, size, etc.) - all free of charge.

Working with an agent is a great way not only to get available listings but advice & help with the eventual purchase.

Greg,
You can try using a website called loopnet which has some commercial listings. However, I recommed you speak with a local commercial broker who specializes in the type of building which you are looking for. A good broker knows what is out there and cost per square foot, etc. There are many different levels of commercial involvement so you need to choose someone who works in the area and type of property you will be purchasing or leasing. I know a few different ones, if you want to contact me and give more details, I will be happy to put you in touch with the appropriate person. Good luck.
