Real Estate Brokerage Accounting

Why Do Real Estate Brokers Need CBD?

Selecting and installing the right accounting software is one step. Using it, ensuring your financial transactions are completed, interpreting the reporting you need and having the accounting, tax and advisory strategies in place to keep you focused on what you do best is how CBD helps. We become the trusted advisor to help grow the business, manage transactions, get your agents paid and collaborate with you to achieve goals and overcome obstacles. For more information, view our dedicated brokerage accounting website.

What Size Brokers Can CBD Support?

Size is not as important as your needs. We can design accounting support for an agency with a few representatives to a large, multi-office organization.

Brokerage Support Services

The easiest way to describe how we can help is broken into 4 parts. These are examples of what we do and this will vary by client:  

  1. Management Reports. Monthly financial statements, key performance indicators and other reports tailored to your specific needs
  2. Day-to-Day. Bill payment, cash management; cash flow planning, bank reconciliations, escrow ledger maintenance, vendor management, expense allocations, credit card transactions, general ledger maintenance, support with closings; fee and agent calculations and monitoring franchise fee reporting.
  3. Annual Needs. Corporate income tax return, Forms 1099, and sales and use tax returns.
  4. Ad Hoc. Industry specific reports, fee and agent deductions set up, acquisitions, drafting internal controls, managing royalty fee audits.

CFO or Controllership

CBD can take whatever role your organization needs. We can become your accountant or be your fractional financial leader. If you have an in-house CFO or Controller, we can focus on the accounting transactional needs. If you need financial leadership, we can become your part-time CFO or Controller.

Our team has decades of experience working with not-for-profit organizations. It’s no secret that your organization – whether a public charity, private foundation or religious organization – is likely to face stricter policies, transparency requests, and compliance guidelines. And so it should come as no surprise that we can help your organization address these items head-on. We will help you maximize your current and future financial resources, and fortify your ability to concentrate on serving the community.
