Ginger Downs

CEO | Chicago Association of Realtors

As the CEO of the Chicago Association of Realtors, Ginger Downs’ most important initiative is to help educate CAR members about the Illinois license law transition with as little hassle and confusion as possible. Downs is also in the process of researching and implementing some of the best tools on the market for agents to help members prosper. “Revamping our statistical data distribution, electronic communications, educational offerings and technology services are among the items we are focusing on to ensure Chicago Realtors are the most competitive in the business,” Downs says.

She loves her role as CEO because not only does she get to work with “the best and the brightest in Chicago real estate,” she also gets to work in the city of Chicago. “It’s a wonderful city to live and play in – and an even more exciting place to appreciate the splendor of the commercial and residential real estate opportunities its 77 neighborhoods have to offer,” Downs explains. “Our advocacy, networking, communications, education and resources are tailored to suit the practitioner of the city – and we are proud to be that ‘voice for real estate’ in Chicago.”

Downs has quite a few plans for the future for CAR and its members, too, including rolling out a series of products and services geared toward helping commercial practitioners succeed in the Chicagoland marketplace, and a platform for young professionals in the industry.
