Our Why

For too long, legislation has been adopted and rules and procedures have been promulgated on the City, County and State level without the input of the neighborhood building owner and developer. As a result, laws have been passed that have proven detrimental and costly not only to building owners and developers, but to building managers, tenants and society at large.

With the assistance of other real estate organizations; state, county and city government; tenant organizations, affordable housing groups and other interested parties, the NBOA hopes to make practical and meaningful changes that will better serve all involved in Chicago’s real estate community.

  • Advocacy
  • Educational Workshops

Now, more than ever, it’s important for all voices to be heard. We work with our members to understand all points of view and educate city officials on our discoveries and perspectives.

Educational Opportunities

We find opportunities to gather owners, developers and their potential counterparts to keep them abreast of new legislation, trends. and partnerships on the horizon.

Strategy & Planning

Rather than working on an individual basis or in small groups, we gather information from all our partners to build strategic positions that mitigate ineffective rules & regulations.
