Key Data from 2016 NAR Member Profile

Today’s typical REALTOR® is younger and slightly less experienced than those in years past, according to data in the latest National Association of REALTORS® Member Profile. This is a good thing, says NAR President Tom Salomone, because it indicates that new professionals are choosing a real estate career. “NAR is excited to have young, fresh perspectives enter the industry, and we are proud to offer resources for our younger members to advance and grow, such as the Young Professionals Network and ‘30 Under 30’ recognition.”

In 2015, the typical agent was a 53-year-old female who had 10 years of experience, worked 40 hours a week, had 11 transactions, and made $39,200 from real estate. She owns her primary residence and is very certain she will remain active as a real estate professional for two more years.
