In a big building, there are many shops, restaurants, etc. There is one mortgage broker office. How to tag that? Thanks!

Could use a node tagged 'office=mortgage_broker' placed within the building outline. Not in common use (yet) - I can only find one instance in Taginfo.
Add extra information tags to the node (name, opening hours, contact info etc)
Building address should go on the building outline/area feature.

When I looked at the tagging of such shops in the UK I came up with the list here:

Some of those values may work for you, but if not and you think office (or shop)=mortgate_broker is best, use that.

I just added one of these (actually they added themselves and I tagged them) as office=mortgage, which seems to be the most popular combo on taginfo and is supported by SomeoneElse's map style. I'd suggest that this is the closest thing to a consensus at the moment, since the wiki's no help here.
