We kicked off 2019 with our annual Market Outlook event to make sure you’re equipped with the information you need to grow your business throughout the year. realtor.com® Chief Economist Danielle Hale gave an in-depth look at the data, trends, demographics shifts and economic drivers impacting residential real estate in Chicago and nationwide.
