Good landlord relationships, a must!

I was recently speaking to a leasing executive friend of mine who is with a large retail property trust - we were discussing various issues within the industry, in particular retailer relationships and people who do what I do, negotiate leases on behalf of retailers.

After some banter, the leasing executive became quite serious and said that he really didn't like dealing with certain lease negotiators and some retailers. When I asked why that was the case, the leasing executive said they were just too difficult to work with and were often abrasive. At first I thought he was having a tacit jab at me, but thankfully he assured me that he was talking about a handful of individuals within the industry, not myself.
