Member Profitabilty Programs (MPPs)

Chicago Association of REALTORS® Member Profitability Programs functions to provide both courses and educational programming to help our members stay “on top” of the industry. In the past, various programs have been offered via broker forums, member information series, professional speakers, and consultation with outside vendors. C.A.R.’s MPPs are educational seminars, provided as a FREE member benefit. Oftentimes, they are developed through close cooperation with affiliate companies. This approach makes these programs unique in that leaders in the industry provide up-to-date information while bridging the gap between academic knowledge.

The result is a cost effective approach to providing great educational offerings. Topics are designed to enhance our members’ knowledge of current industry trends. By working closely with our affiliates, we provide timely, concise subjects.

Attendance provides networking opportunities, allowing the Chicago real estate community to come together while increasing our members’ profitability.

  • Lending
