The Future of the Real Estate Industry
In a field that is a second career for many people, younger real estate practitioners often strive for a way to connect with each other and tap into valuable resources that will help them gain business savvy and succeed.
REALTOR® Magazine launched the Young Professionals Network (YPN) in 2006 as a way to help the younger generation of REALTORS® build a stronger link with the magazine and the real estate industry.
Through networking events, a lively blog, and an engaged YPN Advisory Subcommittee, the program gives its members the tools they need to advance their careers — and have fun in the process.
YPN helps young real estate professionals excel in their careers by giving them the tools and encouragement to become involved in four core areas:
- REALTOR® associations - Attend REALTOR® conferences and pursue leadership roles with their local, state, and national association.
- Real estate industry - Take an active role in policy discussions and advocacy issues; be informed about the latest industry news and trends.
- Peers - Network and learn from one another by attending events, participating in online communication, and seeking out mentoring opportunities.
- Community - Become exceptional members of their community by demonstrating a high level of REALTOR® professionalism and volunteering for causes they feel passionate about.
