Broker representation
Right where you need to be.

You need more than just a license. 

Commercial Property Management is considered a "real estate activity" in most states, requiring that the property management firm have a Broker of Record or Designated Broker.  But you need more than just a license.  Designated Broker Solutions partners with you to assign a licensed, designated broker and to become compliant in every state in which you operate – while maintaining that compliance moving forward.


DBS Services


Property Management licensing requirements vary greatly between states, and can require years of licensed experience to become licensed in each state. So how do you expand your business? Our licensed brokers affiliate with your firm, enabling your business to get up and running in a new state in no time – allowing your market coverage to grow as big as your goals.

True Compliance

Designated Broker Solutions means more than just a license. From providing internal audits which ensure property compliance, to providing new updates and training regarding important changes in regulations – we are truly with you every step of the way. 


Designated Broker Solutions offers a three- tiered approach to becoming licensed and compliant in each state;

  1. DBS assigns or recruits a qualified broker from our affiliated broker network;

  2. We facilitate the firm's licensure by assisting with the paperwork necessary to affiliate the broker with your firm and become licensed in the state,

  3. DBS works with both your firm, and the broker, to ensure all compliance requirements are met.
