The Chicago Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.) is dedicated to “Advocating for REALTORS® and their Clients.” We utilize several different committees and coalitions and a full time professional staff to effectively and efficiently achieve this goal.

The C.A.R. Governmental Affairs Department lobbies legislators and regulators to help pass laws that maintain a healthy business environment for our members and for their clients, and work to defeat laws which increase the cost of housing and inhibit the growth of the real estate industry.
