Does NAR scrimp or splurge on employees (compared to peers)?

Infographic outlines employee compensation of some of the largest trade groups
  • NAR spent an unusually low share of its total revenue on employee compensation in 2013 relative to comparable trade groups.
  • NAR's highest-paid executive's compensation wasn't out of the ordinary compared to peers.

Some real estate agents recently expressed outrage over the level of compensation earned by National Association of Realtors executives. But NAR is actually somewhat of a penny-pincher when it comes to shelling out on employees, at least compared to some of the other largest trade groups, according to a review of 2013 tax forms.
