Abstract: The passage of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB) in 1999 permits nationally-chartered banking institutions to engage in real estate brokerage business if certain conditions are met. However, the Community Choice in Real Estate Act legislation seeks to prevent the GLB Act from being enacted. A survey of banking institutions involved in real estate brokerage finds that these institutions are smaller, less profitable and growing more slowly than the average state-chartered bank. These banks appear to be seeking more profitable lines of business. The results also reveal that most banks are concerned about a substantial loss of loan referrals and other business from Realtors®.
