WASHINGTON, DC–Females make up 63% of NAR’s membership and those who work exclusively in residential have a median gross income from real estate of $46,700, compared to $54,600 for men. Women tend to be younger in age and more likely to work part-time. When it comes to residential business activity, women had a median of eight sales transactions, compared to seven for men. Asian and Pacific Islander members working exclusively in residential real estate have the highest median gross annual income of all ethnic groups at $56,800, followed by White and Caucasian members at $54,200, Hispanic and Latino members at $41,700, and Black and African American at $23,000. Those who work in dual specialties, both residential and commercial, tend to have higher gross median incomes at $89,300.
