The first round of eliminations is over for our 2011 Chicago's Hottest Broker competition, drawing the field down to just eight, and today we'll be plowing forward with some quarterfinal matchups. Voting will remain open until noon tomorrow. And a bit of housekeeping: To any- and everyone still trying to nominate yourselves and others, sorry, but the nominating period is over. There's always next year! Now, onto the voting.
