On September 14, 2016 the Chicago Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.) held its 133rd Annual Inaugural Gala and installed A.R.E. Partners President Antje Gehrken for another term on its Board of Directors. In addition, she was personally selected for a position on its exclusive Executive Committee. 

"Once again, it's a great honor and privilege," said Ms. Gehrken. "There are so many monumental changes ahead for the Association, including our move to the Realtor building, and board selection and participation is of utmost importance. It's inspiring to be held in such high esteem by and work with so many dedicated leaders in the industry!" The induction comes on the heels of Antje receiving her CCIM designation, which recognizes her as an expert in the commercial and investment real estate industry. 

Ms. Gehrken also serves as the 2016-17 Chair of C.A.R.'s Professional Development Advisory Group, the goal of which is to identify professional development topics, classes, events and new programs that would be of value to the members of CAR and the greater Chicagoland real estate community.

Established in 1883, C.A.R. - the "Voice for Real Estate" in Chicago - boasts over 13,000 members in the Chicagoland area with a diverse range of real estate specialties, from residential sales to property management. The induction of Gehrken to its Board of Directors, further supports a marriage of C.A.R.'s resources and authority in Chicago real estate with A.R.E. Partners' quickly rising star. A.R.E., which pioneered the MACH3 approach to real estate, similarly features a diverse community of realtors, including residential, commercial and business brokers.
