This is the best time to be a property agent in the Big Apple since the Great Recession. A fast-growing number of New Yorkers are entering the business in the hope of cashing in on a stronger housing market. The city reported a 7.5 percent year-on-year jump in the number of real estate salespeople, to 29,503 last year. Manhattan leads the wave in sheer numbers as the borough saw its army of salespeople grow to 15,798 in 2013, also a 7.5 percent increase from a year earlier.
