Illinois REALTORS® Local Governmental Affairs Director Brian Bernardoni may be a familiar face to Chicago politicians and area REALTORS® because of his work advocating for the private property rights of consumers and real estate professionals. But his musical talents took center stage Thursday at the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in Boston.

Bernardoni and four other musicians entertained REALTORS® during the NAR 360 session Thursday afternoon at the Hynes Center.

“It was wonderful to work together with colleagues from across the nation and to perform for the members,” Bernardoni said later. “We did a set of six or seven songs for 30 minutes.”

“We were fortunate to play Boston,” he said, noting the group had played together once before. “It was a put-together band on a lark — but well worth it.”
