In the United States, real estate brokers and sales agents account for about 520,000 jobs, with agents holding about 75% of those jobs. Many brokers and agents work part time, combining their real estate jobs with other careers. Over half of brokers and agents are self-employed. Real estate employment is generally concentrated in large urban areas.
