Appropriate to ask developer their viewpoint on the side as a broker?
Background I (with other brokers in my office) sent this developer a large vacant building that they passed on. I've been a broker for two years out of undergrad and am always looking to learn more. I wanted to underwrite this property, see what assumptions I thought made sense and then reach out to the Partner (2nd in command to CEO and only two on email chain).
I've personally (including this deal) sent them 10+ deals. This is the first I wanted to do this for - to learn more about how he saw the deal being a very experienced developer, share what I thought about it and see if he agreed/what I maybe missed.
I plan on making it clear this is not in a official capacity and purely to learn. I'm on the fence if this is appropriate/unprofessional and he might see it as a waste of time. It's purely to learn more about a developers viewpoint and to hopefully build a better connection discussing deals in more detail. Thoughts and can this backfire?
