The Top 25 Brokerages listing is based on responses to NREI's Top Brokerage survey, which was originally published in April. Brokers were asked to provide the total dollar value of leasing transactions and investment sales during 2004. The totals were combined to determine the company's ranking. While NREI made every attempt to ensure the final survey was comprehensive, some companies chose not to participate.
