The commercial real estate market is much less standardized than the residential real estate market. Just being able to find what spaces are currently available is difficult in the commercial market. There are also many nuances involved like zoning restrictions that an experienced broker can help you navigate. When you also consider the fact that the landlord is normally the one that pays the broker's commission, there is really no reason not to work with a broker.
With the above in mind, you may also want to consider working with a real estate attorney who can help you navigate the lease and point out potential issues.
