YPN is short for Young Professionals Network. YPN is a member-driven organization that helps young real estate professionals excel in their careers by giving them tools and encouragement to become involved in four core areas:
Realtor Associations: Attend Realtor conferences and pursue leadership roles with NSDCAR, CAR, and NAR.
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 communications, and seeking out mentoring opportunities.
Community: Become exceptional members of their community by setting a high level of REALTOR® professionalism and volunteering for causes they feel passionate about.
Why Should I Join YPN?
Exclusive Invitations to YPN Events: YPN events are a fun way for members to meet other real estate professionals from around the country, and build a referral network.
Stay Abreast of Industry Happenings: Through a lively blog, social media, an information-packed website, and networking events, members stay in the loop on hot issues facing the real estate industry. YPN also has special educational sessions at Realtor conferences that address strategies for success in real estate.
Have Your Own Sounding Board: Young professionals have unique challenges in real estate – and they also face challenges shared by all practitioners. By belonging to a network of peers who face similar issues, they can bounce ideas off of one another and provide support to each other.
Get Involved: Many people who are new to the industry want to get involved with their local, state or national association of Realtors, but they either don’t know how to go about it or they find it too intimidating. YPN encourages them to explore leadership opportunities across the board.
YPN’s target audience is 21-40ish, so jump in and get involved!
