Number of REALTORs decreases in California for the first time since 1999

According to the California Association of REALTORS, the number of members dropped in December 2007. While not a huge decrease, it is significant if you look how the membership has grown the past few years.

There still are A LOT of Realtors out there. In 2007, there was 1 Realtor for every 1.4 homes sold in the state.
