In 1916 real estate leaders from around Illinois banded together to form what would become the Illinois Association of REALTORS® (IAR). The objective: To unite brokers, agents, dealers and owners for the purpose of formulating, promoting and enforcing high standards of ethics in relation to transactions in real estate. Today, the Illinois Association of REALTORS® has grown to become one of the largest trade associations in the state of Illinois, representing 41,000 REALTORS® statewide who are involved in virtually all aspects related to the sale, purchase, exchange or lease of real property in Illinois.
