How Much Do Realtor Association Execs Pull In
Real Estate Broker’s Insider’s interactive graphic shows revenue and compensation for 60 large Realtor associations.
(Mountain Lakes, NJ, September 21, 2017) — The nation’s 60 largest Realtor organizations pulled in some $600 million in revenue in 2015, and they paid their CEOs more than $20 million.
That’s according to Real Estate Broker’s Insider’s annual analysis of tax returns filed by national, state, and regional associations. Most organizations’ 2015 returns were made public this spring and summer.
The rising fortunes of Realtor associations underscore a paradox in the real estate industry. On the one hand, the housing market is recovering, and Realtors remain loyal to their local, state, and national associations. Member support is underscored by bustling attendance at Realtor conferences and generous contributions to political action committees.
On the other hand, brokers and agents complain constantly about profit pressures, relentless competition, and the cost of keeping pace with new technology — even as their dues support several layers of associations.
