A real estate brokerage has unique needs, and HBC lawyers understand how to help brokerages accomplish their goals. Whether your brokerage is a large franchisee or a small boutique, we will help you find solutions that fit your needs. We help brokerages manage risks, retain and attract agents, develop policies and comply with the federal and state laws applicable to brokerages and their agents. We represent agents in complaints before the Oregon Real Estate Agency and Washington Department of Licensing, as well as ethics hearings, mediations and arbitrations conducted before Realtor® association panels. We handle disputes in a cost-effective manner in cooperation with your E&O insurance company. We also help with your back office: leasing space, reviewing insurance coverage, and entering into contracts with vendors and suppliers.
