Not surprisingly, the number of licensed agents and brokers statewide has declined almost 22 percent since 2007, just after the Valley's housing market peaked.There are roughly 51,000 agents and brokers, according to the latest figures from the Arizona Department of Real Estate. That is down from more than 65,000 in 2007.
