The Mainstreet Organization of REALTORS« announced John LeTourneau as its new president on September 8. LeTourneau is the commercial managing director at Keller Williams Realty Infinity in Naperville. He also serves on Mainstreet's board of directors and is a member of the Commercial and Government Affairs Committee.

"In the past few years, and especially during COVID, our world has rapidly gone from hyper local to hyper global. Concepts like farm to table, microbreweries in nearly every town, and shopping locally have enriched the tapestries of our communities," LeTourneau said. "REALTORS« working from hyper local to hyper global are at the heart of Mainstreet's mission, vision, and values and represent a model for the future of real estate."


LeTourneau's global lens stems from his Irish heritage. A dual citizen of the U.S. and Ireland, he's visited the country about 50 times. He's proud of how COVID led to strengthened relations with REALTORS« in Ireland, India, Serbia, Poland, Mexico, and beyond. In LeTourneau's acceptance speech he pledged to expand Mainstreet's capacity to support members and clients from a local and global perspective. He also pledged to focus on agent safety.

LeTourneau will be taking over for Linda Dressler, immediate past president of Mainstreet and broker and REALTOR« at RE/MAX Suburban.

"We have complete confidence that John and his amazing leadership team will lead Mainstreet to places it has not been and will continue to make Mainstreet the pinnacle of excellence where everyone has a place to call home," said immediate past president Linda Dressler.

Mainstreet CEO John Gormley welcomed LeTourneau and shared excitement for what the coming year will bring

"Mainstreet just celebrated our 100th anniversary, and we have bold new plans for continuing to evolve how we serve our members and our community as we move into our second century," Gormley said. "I look forward to working with John LeTourneau as we continue to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the real estate industry here in the Chicagoland area."
