The typical member of the National Assn. of Realtors is a 52-year-old married female who has a gross personal income of $47,700 and who works 43 hours a week.
She is a sales agent who has been in the business for 13 years, and she has been affiliated with the same brokerage company for five years.
The brokerage company with which she is affiliated operates a single office and is independently owned.
These and other findings are revealed in the 2001 National Assn. of Realtors member profile, based on a survey of 40,000 members earlier this year with a response rate of 19%.
The survey found that nearly 9 out of 10 Realtors have completed some college courses and that 45% hold a bachelor's degree.
One-third of the association's membership holds at least one professional designation, and nearly a quarter holds the Graduate, Realtor Institute designation.
