The median wage for Texas real estate sales agents was $48,450 in 2023.

The big picture: Most observers believe commissions will fall, possibly down to 1%–1.5% per agent on each side, Axios' Emily Peck reports.

Reality check: Real estate agent pay is relatively low in Texas, at least compared to other states.
