Thanks to more than 450 recent registrants for REALTOR® Party mobile text alerts, the total number of Illinois REALTORS® who receive them has reached 6,863, according to the NAR.
Subscribers to the mobile alerts receive a text message reminder when NAR issues a Call for Action on critically important legislation and makes responding even easier. Illinois REALTORS® is among the largest state associations to reach the benchmark so far. Today’s NAR report showed 12 states — including Illinois — surpassed their annual goals.
“Reaching this milestone after only seven months is fantastic,” says Christopher Tenggren, 2017 chair of the REALTORS® Political Involvement Committee and an associate at RE/MAX All Pro in St. Charles. “It is a tribute to the character of our members. REALTORS® take great pride protecting the rights of private property owners and helping their local communities grow. REALTORS® who sign up for mobile text alerts and respond to calls for action recognize the power we have when we communicate together.”
Members who have not yet subscribed to the REALTOR® Party Mobile Alerts may do so by texting the word “REALTORS” to 30644.
