LOCAL REALTORS® AMONG LARGEST CROWD EVER TO ATTEND ANNUAL LOBBY DAY

Thirty-one members of Three Rivers Association of REALTORS® were among over 750 REALTORS® from throughout the state of Illinois who traveled to Springfield on April 25 for the 2017 Illinois REALTORS® Capital Conference “REALTOR Lobby Day.” This was the largest crowd ever to attend this annual event during which they had the opportunity to meet with state legislators to discuss issues important to Illinois homeowners and the real estate industry in general. “This is just one example of how seriously our members as well as REALTORS® from across the state view their role as advocates for property rights that will directly impact the buyers and sellers they work with each and every day,” said David McClintock, CEO of Three Rivers Association of REALTORS®. Both Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner and Speaker of the House Mike Madigan attended a special reception for a select group of REALTORS® on Monday evening. Three Rivers Association of REALTORS® President Matt Persicketti described Lobby Day as the most important day of the year for members of the real estate industry. “All of our legislators were reached and heard directly from their constituents. They were all very receptive to our views on bills that we supported and opposed,” said Persicketti.
Three Rivers Association of REALTORS® is a non-profit organization that represents over 1,000 members in Will and Grundy Counties dedicated to professional and ethical service to their real estate clients.
