Definition
someone who negotiates or facilitates agreements between other parties (such as a real estate or stock broker)
  • For Lord Hamlet, Believe so much in him, that he is young; And with a larger tether may he walk Than may be given you: in few, Ophelia, Do not believe his vows; for they are brokers,— Not of that dye which their investments show, But mere implorators of unholy suits, Breathing like sanctified and pious bawds, The better to beguile.
    1.3 — Act 1 Scene 3 — A room in Polonius's house (94% in)
