Make sure that the broker isn't a designated broker to get an LLC or DBA. Designated brokers are registered with the state during the time that the company is open. This usually means that the broker will show up on the publications as the principal. The issue happens if the business closes while the broker still has an LLC or DBA status. The outcome is that the person who was listed as the main will look as the'representative' on the books.
