Illinois REALTORS® plans to meet with a series of Illinois lawmakers in the next month, part of the association’s ongoing effort this year to foster discussion on real estate issues at the federal level.  

The Let’s Talk Real Estate series will feature discussions with U.S. Reps. Raja Krishnamoorthi on Aug. 8, and Robin Kelly on Aug. 9. Illinois REALTOR® members who live in those districts will be getting invitations to the events in their email.

Other Let’s Talk Real Estate meetings scheduled in the coming months include: U.S. Rep. John Shimkus, Rodney Davis, Brad Schneider, Jan Schakowsky, Cheri Bustos, Darin LaHood, Adam Kinzinger and Bill Foster.

The meetings allow Illinois REALTORS® team of Federal Political Coordinators to talk with a representative on issues that matter to the industry. Members often provide updates so federal officeholders have insight they need into what the real estate market is doing.

Already this year, Illinois REALTORS® has met with U.S. Reps. Danny Davis, Sean Casten, Lauren Underwood and Dan Lipinski. The association’s members also met with U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth in May in Washington, D.C., as part of the annual NAR Midyear Legislative Meetings & Expo.

Other meetings are planned in the upcoming two months.
