A broker is someone who acts as an agent or "middle man" between the buyer and seller in financial transactions. They may represent the buyer or the seller, but not both at the same time. Brokers often receive a fee or commission and may help negotiate stock, real estate, or other investment deals individually or as part of a brokerage firm.
