Chicago is known for complex and restrictive landlord and tenant policies, but there are dozens of people fighting for change and protection. Kris Anderson of the Chicago Association of Realtors is one of those people on the front lines. Not everyone knows the role of CAR, so Kris explains what they do and his role in the machine as well as other groups and associations who are allies. Some hot button topics covered in today’s episode include RLTO reforms and rent control; some of the biggest issues for individual landlords as well as some great reasons to be optimistic about Chicago’s future.
