Comment from National Association of REALTORS

NAR supports the protection of, and efforts to further secure, the right of real estate salespeople to work as independent contractors and for brokers to choose to classify real estate salespeople as independent contractors. Being classified as an independent contractor is why many individuals are attracted to the real estate sales industry – it empowers entrepreneurship, maximizes flexibility, and promotes autonomy. On average, REALTORS® have nine years of experience in the real estate industry and are remaining with real estate as a career choice for a longer duration. The ability to be classified as an independent contractor is a primary reason the real estate profession is so appealing and preserving the structure is integral to the functioning of the housing market
