there is no proper system of estate agents in Batam. or in Indonesia generally, for that matter.

i my experience, the best way to find what you want is to drive around looking at location you want to be. look out for "dikontrakkan" signs. even where there is no sign, if a place looks empty or underused, you could try an approach to the owner to see if they want to rent it out.

use an indonesian to make the initial phone calls so you don't get a special foreigner price. Once you have all the price details, reveal yourself then.

Better than that is to even get a local to be with you at all times even during the signing of te lease etc....But you must also be careful of that as you can get burned.
