The Illinois Association of REALTORS® meeting series, “Let’s Talk Real Estate,” is featured in a recent REALTOR® Magazine article, “Capitol Hill Comes to Illinois REALTORS®.” Since last summer, the popular program has allowed Illinois REALTORS® to meet face-to-face with their local member of Congress and talk about federal legislation and issues important to the industry.
IAR President Phil Chiles told the magazine that the Let’s Talk Real Estate program is an important way for REALTORS® to build relationships with elected officials and show that REALTORS® are politically active and engaged. Read the full article.
“Congressman and congresswomen typically see REALTORS® once a year at the meetings in D.C., and that’s good. But when we can put 50, 60, or 70 people in a room with them and say, ‘Congressman, here are REALTORS® from your district, and here’s what we want you to understand,’ that congressman understands that we’re not just talking about 6 or 7 people. We’re talking about whole communities,” Chiles said.
