Thriving Young Professionals Network

The Young Professionals Network (YPN) at the Ontario Real Estate Association continues to grow.

The Young Professionals Network (YPN) at the Ontario Real Estate Association continues to grow. This group, aimed at encouraging people new to real estate to become more involved with their profession, has grown to more than 800 members in the past year. The network was successfully launched in March 2012 with a kick-off event attended by more than 250 REALTORS®. It maintains a strong, active media presence on Facebook and the OREA blog via weekly posts written by YPN members. In addition, the network held six “Learn, Network, Grow” events across the Ontario and representatives attended additional YPN events in Kitchener-Waterloo, Oakville, Brampton, Ottawa, and in the U.S. at the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). South of the border, OREA’s YPN was officially recognized as a chapter of NAR, with Amie Ferris, OREA’s YPN chair, named the first international member of NAR’s YPN advisory subcommittee.
