Thank you to all of you tenacious realtors!


Here are some highlights from the recent member survey from NAR:

These were among the ones that surprised me:

  • The typical NAR member has 12 years of experience; nine out of 10 say they are certain they will remain in the business.

 

  • NAR members in the business for two years or less earned a median of $8,900, while those in the business for 16 years or more earned $47,100. Sixteen percent earned a six-figure income, reflecting the entrepreneurial aspect of REALTOR® businesses.

 

  • Fourteen percent of REALTORS® work fewer than 20 hours per week, 30 percent work 20 to 39 hours per week, 41 percent work 40 to 59 hours and 15 percent work 60 hours per week or more.

 

  •  Half of the respondents use social or professional networking sites and 10 percent have a blog.

So basically the key to a successful realtor is committment, training and putting in the hours… WOW! Who knew?

I am also surprised that only half use social media and only 10% have a blog… something to think about… could that be a niche that you are fully missing out on?

Again, THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU TENACIOUS REALTORS.  I love you!

Having a dream is good, owning one is better!
