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. Many state and local REALTOR® associations have already started a Young Professionals Network.

The Central Oregon Association of REALTORS® has created a YPN chapter at the local level. This is a great opportunity for our members to network and build their businesses as well as make friends within the real estate industry. We offer several networking events throughout the year and plan to build on the program each year. 

COAR welcomes sponsors for these events either by providing financial assistance for the event, donating prizes, or providing function space. For additional information on co-sponsoring a YPN event, please contact Kim Gammond.
