Buyers are trying to quickly capitalize on the tail end of low interest rates, which has not only helped the housing market but also workers behind the curtain: mainly Realtors.

Realogy Holdings Corp. (RLGY), owner of real estate brands Century 21, Coldwell Banker, Coldwell Banker Commercial and more real estate firms, reported $4.6 billion in total revenue for 2012.
