The second section of the Real Estate Almanac, Organized Real Estate, includes all 565 MLSs, 51 state Realtor associations (Washington, D.C., is tracked separately) and 1,086 local Realtor associations.

The three largest state associations track with those states’ populations with California, Florida and Texas leading the pack and the only associations with membership counts above 100,000 Realtors. Together, these three associations have 513,127 members (brokers and agents), accounting for 36.4 percent of the nation’s Realtor membership.
