REALTOR® Magazine launched the Young Professionals Network (YPN) in 2006 as an outgrowth of the popular “30 Under 30” feature with the goal to help the younger generation of REALTORS® build a stronger link with the real estate industry and expand networking and business opportunities.
The Young Professionals Network and the YPN Advisory Subcommittee help young real estate practitioners become more business savvy and gain new business by hosting regular networking events, communicating with other YPN members through the popular YPN Facebook Group, and sharing tips and tricks on the YPN Lounge blog.
Many state and local REALTOR® associations have already started a Young Professionals Network. To see if there’s a YPN established in your area, check out our full list of networks. If you are interested in starting up your own local YPN network, download our YPN Start-Up Kit.
