Contacting a Broker

Our Buyer and Seller have decided on their stock transaction.  However neither knows about each other.  All Drew knows is that he needs cash for a down payment on a home.  All Meghan knows is that she's found a company that's introducing a product that will be a success.

They cannot conduct the transactions by themselves, so they contact a stock broker.  A stock broker can be an individual you contact in person, via phone or email, or an online service where you enter the details of your transaction yourself.
