C.A.R.® Top-Ten Benefits
Keeping You Up To Date On The Things That Can Make A Difference To Your Business Success
Every aspect of today’s real estate industry is changing. Technology, the new consumer, regulations, and emerging business models and practices are all impacting your life on a daily basis. Few firms have the resources to monitor these trends and keep their people current with the perfect response. CAR excels at this function via various industry updates and a training system that is prepared to both inform and prepare you to realize the opportunities of the new real estate environment.
Everyone Wants To Be Surrounded By The Best
Every CAR event offers you the opportunity to interact with top Chicago area real estate producers networking and sharing ideas and information. Why would you want to be anywhere else?
Access To The Blueprint For The New Business Model
The real estate industry is in midst of a major transition that is impacting every aspect of REALTOR® operations. CAR is tracking the latest solutions for brokers and agents at all levels both nationally and in the Chicago marketplace.
Powerful Government Influence Where It Matters
Each year hundreds of proposals seeking to adversely affect private property ownership and the real estate industry are submitted to local, state and national government agencies throughout Illinois and the United States. Your CAR investment supports a powerful government affairs program that year after year has successfully defended your right to conduct business.
The Only Voice That Counts Is A Loud One
Throughout the history of America the one lesson that has proven itself over and over again is that there is strength in numbers. Your REALTOR® investment supports a local, regional, national and international network that is working to defend and protect the REALTOR® lifestyle every day. Without this protection real estate today would be a far different experience.
CAR Recognizes The Very Best Every Year
We all understand that success begins with financial achievement but we also know that it ends with peer recognition. Your CAR investment supports recognition programs that remind both the industry and the public of the important role of the REALTOR® in making the American dream come alive.
Reliable Data – Every Time – 24 Hours A Day/7 Days A Week
Your CAR investment provides you with access to one of the largest and best real estate data bases in the country; MLSNI. This resource is committed to keeping pace with your changing information needs. Used by more REALTORs® and attorneys than any other forms, your investment entitles you to access to CAR’s inventory of deal-winning contracts and forms for a successful transaction every time. Even better, these forms will soon be on-line for your convenience.
Ethical Standards That Work
The REALTOR® Code of Ethics provides a solid foundation upon which to build profitability, productivity and responsible transactions. Your CAR investment sponsors an effective environment that supports business standards within the industry through mediation, arbitration and peer review.
Helping You Keep Your License In Good Standing
Maintaining a current valid license is a continuing challenge for all Chicago REALTORs®. Your CAR investment supports a total solution by designing programs and education that monitor renewal requirements and provide the courses necessary to keep member licenses in good standing.
