The Chicago Association of REALTORS® LinkedIn page has nearly 3,000, members and the discussion board is a popular way to communicate with other agents or ask questions about the market. The C.A.R. CommercialForum also maintains a LinkedIn presence.

The C.A.R. blog is the place to join the conversation on industry issues. It’s also the home of our popular YPN Mentor Series posts. Recent entries have included client communication techniques, leadership, workforce housing and the latest commercial real estate tool. CommercialForum also maintains its own vital blog.
