The GBRAR Young Professionals Network was established in 2012, as a local branch of the National Association of REALTORS® and Louisiana REALTORS® YPNs. 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 Committee, the program gives its members the tools they need to advance their careers — and have fun in the process.
The YPN Mission
YPN helps young real estate professionals excel in their careers by giving them the tools and encouragement to become involved in four core areas:
REALTOR® Associations: Attend REALTOR® conferences and pursue leadership roles with the GBRAR, LR,, and the 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 communication, and seeking out mentoring opportunities.
Community: Become exceptional members of their community by demonstrating a high level of REALTOR® professionalism and volunteering for causes they feel passionate about.
