To be a broker: the series

An Inman News editorial project

Inman News is preparing a series of articles focusing on the everyday experiences of real estate brokers, including the pressing issues and hardships they face. We will profile brokers across the country, detailing the market conditions that they face and their varied operating styles and business models.

Many brokers have been faced with tough decisions during this national recession and prolonged housing slump, such as staffing cuts and office downsizing and consolidations. This series will examine how brokers are enduring this challenging onslaught of foreclosures, tightened lending, and economic decline, and what changes they are making to survive and thrive.

As we prepare this series we are open to reader recommendations on broker profiles: Send us names and contact information for brokers who you think we should profile, as well as your reasons on why they would make a good subject for this series.
