Valentine's Day is around the corner and we thought we would highlight a few of Chicago's real estate power couples. Turns out, there are more than just a few execs mixing business and pleasure.


  • GlobeSt. :There’s Money in Class B, C Multifamily

As every one predicted (except me), they did not raise interest rates. Once again, however, they dropped hints that they might decide to do so soon. No specific date for such an increase was specified, but analysts are again speculating that an increase could occur at their last 2015 meeting, scheduled for Dec. 15-16, or at their second 2016 meeting, schedule for March 15-16. Both of those meetings will be followed by news conferences with Janet Yellen, Chair of the Fed, providing her with an appropriate forum for such an announcement.
