Looking at the examples in your attached file, your first two examples violate this rule.  You have the following in C3:C4...

RE/MAX Real Estate Solutions    (4 words)
hockingstuart             (1 word)

So, what is the real requirement?
Even if you can further define the requirements as requested by matthewspatrick, your request is pretty much impossible because the content/format of the data (particularly the street address) isn't consistent. For example in row 7 your requirement to get the street number is messed up by "1st Floor" and in row 13 by "Suite 2".
