Why This Matters

For the first time in the history of REACH Labs, Chicago is advancing collaboration and community by creating a Lab that brings together the Chicago REALTORS®, Mainstreet Organization of REALTORS®, Midwest Real Estate Data, LLC and the North Shore-Barrington Association of REALTORS® to shine a spotlight on emerging technologies throughout Chicagoland and the state of Illinois.

Through our partnership, members will:

  • Learn about exciting startups

  • Be part of the conversation around relevant innovation
