The report is based on 2009 Census data, the latest information available. Metro Jackson has 591 rental, real estate or leasing firms employing a total of 3,228 workers, with an average pay of $36,400. Of those firms, 589 are small businesses with 99 or fewer employees.
Johnny Brown, president of the Jackson Association of Realtors and Realtor at ERA Real Estate Professionals, said employment is tied to market health, which appears to be improving. “I can tell you over the past two to three months our pending sales have improved. I think we’re 10 to 13 percent higher than we were this time a year ago, and that’s very good news,” Brown said.
