Question:

Roland, a broker, arranges a sale and opens escrow. Before escrow closes, his license is revoked by the Department of Real Estate (DRE). What happens to Roland’s commission?

A Roland gets his commission.
Explaination

The broker’s commission is earned when a ready, willing, and able buyer is found. Thus, since the broker was licensed at the time he procured a buyer as contracted for, he is able to collect his fee.
