I know it varies by state, but it seems like a lot of states require a real estate or other license to be a broker? This is confusing to me. If you use an attorney to finalize the transaction do you really need a brokerage or real estate license to market and list a business for sale?

Not trying to qualify a broker or anything - but I haven't found a great answer to this question and now I'm going down a rabbit hole! Thanks in advance for edifying me!
