The income and business of REALTORS® is growing after many years of decline, according to the 2012 National Association of REALTORS® Member Profile.

Paul Bishop, NAR vice president of research, says member income rose for the first time since 2002. "The national median income of a REALTOR® rose 2.3 percent to $34,900 in 2011, which is the first overall gain in nine years,” he says. "The good news is home sales are rising, overall activity is expected to be notably better this year, and individual prospects are much brighter given there are fewer REALTORS® than several years ago.”

Members licensed as brokers typically earned $48,400 in 2011, while the median for sales agents was $27,200.
