DEPARTMENT OF REAL ESTATE CALIFORNIA BROKER
By law, every real estate agent and every real estate agency must be overseen and managed by a real estate broker. Legally speaking, that broker is called the designated broker, and bears the legal responsibility for all transactions that agents working under them complete. Designated brokers who own the brokerage for which they are the designated broker are sometimes called broker-owners as well. Sasha is the designated broker for his real estate firm and makes sure all agents and deals are in compliance with the Department of Real Estate. He also takes his continued education courses when required and even when not required takes courses at UCLA.
