From Middle Low German mākeler, mēkeler, and Middle Dutch makelare (compare modern Dutch makelaar). There are conflicting statements about whether the Dutch word was borrowed from Low German, or vice versa. The further origin is uncertain, but the word seems to be eventually derived from the verb Middle Low German māken, Middle Dutch maken (“to make”), here in the sense of “do business”. For this verb see German machen, English make.
