The Illinois Association of REALTORS® supported the creation of the new Division of Real Estate because it will provide more attention to the real estate industry and allow for better enforcement of the rules and regulations that dictate how real estate transactions are handled.

The new Division of Real Estate will oversee a multitude of state laws, including the Real Estate License, the Home Inspector License and the Land Sales Registration acts. In the past, real estate regulation has been handled through the Bureau of Real Estate Professions, which was located within the Division of Professional Regulation.
