Our History

YPN was founded in 2007. Today, more than 20,000 REALTORS® call themselves “YPN.” In addition to this national network, nearly 400 state and local REALTOR® associations now have their own Young Professionals Network. To find a network near you, peruse a full list of networks.

For REALTOR® Associations

If you’re an association executive or volunteer leader looking for ways to engage and energize younger, newer members, download the YPN Start-Up Kit. It gives you a step-by- step guide to establishing a network at your association, plus ideas for planning group activities and tips for promoting events and getting sponsors.

YPN Value Proposition

The Young Professionals Network is a dynamic entry point for real estate professionals striving to become more successful in their careers and gain leadership experience. By providing this entry point, NAR is building a new, diverse generation of leaders, strengthening members' affinity for the REALTOR® brand early in their career, and gaining a valuable perspective on generational shifts. YPN's growth has been driven by REALTORS®. YPN has evolved from a REALTORS® Magazine offshoot to a determined, passionate, savvy group of members who use social media effectively and transparently and who are committed to strengthening the REALTOR® brand.
