With a century of service, the Illinois REALTORS® is the only advocate for private property rights at the Capitol in Springfield and in communities statewide. We stand for excellence in advocacy, education and ethics for real estate practitioners.
In 1916 real estate leaders from around Illinois banded together to form what would become the Illinois REALTORS®. The objective: To unite brokers, agents, dealers and owners for the purpose of formulating, promoting and enforcing high standards of ethics in relation to transactions in real estate. Today, the Illinois REALTORS® has grown to become one of the largest trade associations in the state of Illinois, representing 43,000 REALTORS® statewide who are involved in virtually all aspects related to the sale, purchase, exchange or lease of real property in Illinois.
