please recommend your real estate agent

So here's a thought. One of the most popular things going on in Seattle now is tearing down a large chain store (usually a large grocery store or drug store) and rebuilding it with about 5 floors of condos on top. This is due to some zoning changes that allow higher buildings now where they were not previously allowed.

But it stands to reason that since there is a major business downstairs, each of these condos is automatically in a commercial/residential zone that would legally permit me to do business from the condo. I could buy one and turn it into a studio, earning equity instead of blowing $2,000 a month in rent on a dance studio. The catch? Most of these over a business type condos are secured buildings. So my clients couldn't get in. The other catch is that I need to make sure it's only a condo over the business, and not one so high up that it's over some one else's condo. While the music is always off by 10pm, I want to be fair and not subject a downstairs neighbor to loud music.

Who in Seattle has a real estate agent they think is the bomb? I'm going to see if I can find a condo that is:

1. Over a business, thus commercially zoned
2. Not in a secured building
3. On the floor that is over the business and not over some one else's condo
