A month-over-month decline in the number of people working in real estate finance was the result of a drop in staffing at the nation’s mortgage brokers.

U.S. nonfarm payroll employment increased by 235,000 jobs during February, according to data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Growth was mostly in line with the upwardly revised 238,000 jobs added the previous month and the downwardly revised 237,000 a year previous.>
