The survey also found that commercial REALTORS® complete on average a median of nine transactions a year and the median sales transaction volume was $2,931,000.

“As the U.S. economy continues to experience strong, steady recovery, NAR has seen more and more members choose to specialize in commercial real estate. REALTORS® who practice commercial real estate help build and improve the economies of our local communities, so as a community’s commercial real estate market grows and improves so does the local economy,” said NAR President Tom Salomone said in a news release.
