What does "run an office" entail? How brokerages are managed depends on what the state rules are.

There's no place like home.

If you're running "our office"... I'd say less than 12 minutes.

Depends on your state's laws and the contract between the associate and the principal broker.  Digging the new question too!  I can speak only for my organization (a company of two), it wouldn't be a problem.

Better check with the rules of your state. This is tricky. How long? There are different levels of sickness & agents must be considered supervised.

I don't remember this question ever being asked - good job.

Each state is different.  This answer depends on how sick the broker is, are they in capacitated and what your state laws say.  Best to ask an attorney in your state that question.  Or call your state licensing department.

I'm sure that varies state to state.  In Georgia if a princple broker dies, owners have 6 months to replace.

Many principal brokers appoint other managers to oversee daily operations. The principal broker is the person that is ultimately responsibe for the supervision of the agents and accountable to the real estate commission for their actions. In TN if the principal is incapacitated and unable to supervise or be responsible (severely ill or in a coma, a new broker is to be appointed within 10 days. Under special circumstances our real estate commission will give 30 days for this transfer of duty.
