Evaluating Brokerages

A residential real estate brokerage is a company – usually an incorporated firm, a limited liability firm or a sole proprietorship – licensed to sell real estate in the US. For the Mega 1000’s purposes, a brokerage company’s numbers include subsidiaries in which the holding company owns a controlling stake – thus more than 50 percent of the company.
