“Led Line Road” will be making their debut performance at this year’s networking reception on Oct. 1 to kick off the 2013 Illinois Association of REALTORS® Fall Conference & Expo in St. Charles, Ill.  And we’re especially excited here at the IAR headquarters to showcase this talent. Why? It’s our house band!

That’s right! When these guys are not busy fighting fire sprinkler mandates, upgrading servers and creating complex matrices, they are jamming together in Mark’s garage. Read these fun facts about the band members and come hear their renditions of songs from Jimmy Buffet to Lynyrd Skynyrd and everything in between. All IAR Fall Conference, Commercial Session and REbarcamp Illinois attendees are welcome.

  • Computers make very fast, very accurate mistakes
