Why Are Real Estate Companies Called Organizations?
Posted by David Zaring

New York City alone has the Durst Organization, the Brodsky Organization, the Trump Organization, &c.  Why are these called organizations?  It's not that they aren't also limited liability companies as well.  And it is the case that many non real estate firms will set up internal "real estate organizations" to manage their property.  But my quick search on Westlaw and through the websites of these companies didn't reveal the reason for the fashion for the "organization" moniker.  The question isn't easy to resolve via text searching ("organization" isn't very unique).  So I thought I might crowd-source the question.  Do our readers know the answer?  I'll update the post if I find out more.
