I read an interesting post this morning by Jay Thompson, The Phoenix Real Estate Guy. He was asked how many Realtors were in Arizona and how many per-capita.
The answer he came up with surprised me somewhat. Arizona has over 43,000 licensed Realtors. With there population that works out to be 1 agent for every 153 people in the state. Wow, that’s a lot. In fact, out of the top 10 states of Realtor population, Arizona has the lowest per-capita.
This report naturally got me curious as to how Oklahoma would compare. Per the National Association of Realtors Monthly Membership Report of July 2010, Oklahoma has 9,084 Realtors. Our 2009 population estimate is 3,687,050. This works out to 406 per Realtor in Oklahoma.
So there you have it. If you’ve thought there are too many Realtors, Oklahoma is better off than most!
