Broker Quotations

After I dropped out of college at the age of 19, I became a mortgage broker, and when I went back to school I thought about going into real estate law. I probably would have made a lot more money and died of boredom by now.
Alice Dreger

I do not regard a broker as a member of the human race.
Honore de Balzac

Kathleen Wynne

Ron Chernow
