Illinois REALTORS® celebrated the addition of office space in Chicago on Tuesday as part of a reception honoring the Chicago Association of REALTORS®’ move to a new headquarters.
CAR recently moved from its old offices on South Michigan Avenue to the eighth floor of the REALTOR® Building on North Michigan Avenue. The transition was celebrated with a ribbon cutting and reception at the offices on Tuesday.
As part of the move, Illinois REALTORS® is subleasing offices in the CAR space for advocacy staff. The association also has retained space for a conference room.
“The Illinois Association has long needed a more permanent place for our growing staff, and it’s a natural fit for us to have offices and meeting space here among our Chicago association colleagues,” said Illinois REALTORS® President Doug Carpenter. “The unique three-way agreement of national, state and local organizations that is a hallmark of the REALTOR® organization is clearly embodied in this space.”
Illinois REALTORS® Treasurer Dan Wagner played a pivotal role in making the move into the headquarters of the National Association of REALTORS®. At the time the decision was made he was president of the Chicago association.
