YPN Connection

Across Canada, Young Professionals Networks (YPN) are creating valuable opportunities for newer members of the REALTOR® community. CREA’s national YPN Connection program looks to support these efforts while creating a connected ecosystem of #REALTORypns who share and learn from each other.

Our experts are ready to share their insights. Check out our list of available speakers and their area of expertise!

YPNs create a valuable community for young and new REALTORS® by delivering on the three YPN Pillars:


Creating opportunities for REALTORS® to build a network that will help them succeed.


Helping YPNers with the steep learning curve that comes with being a REALTOR®.


Developing leadership skills early by sitting on the committee or running YPN programs and events.

“YPNs help transform new REALTORS® into the industry leaders of tomorrow. YPNs dedication to our profession and our REALTOR® Code is paramount for our future. A thriving, national network of REALTOR® YPNs will assist in ensuring that Canadian real estate is in good hands for years to come.”

Jill Oudil,
Chair of the Canadian Real Estate Association

“YPN has affected my career in many positive ways: the great, new relationships with other agents and YPNers all across North America, as well as seeing everyone come together to give back to the community has been extremely rewarding. If YPN is something you are considering, reach out and get involved!”

Kate Philpott, YPN Chair

Vancouver Island Real Estate Board

“The Young Professionals Network was the catalyst for my career in organized real estate. I started volunteering at OREA’s YPN and decided to get involved at my local board at the same time. After serving a year on the committee, I decided to run for the board of directors at OREA.”

James Milonas, Past YPN Chair

Ontario Real Estate Association

“I’ve enjoyed my years serving on YPN Committees: from being a past Chair for TRREB’s YPN, to a member of OREA’s YPN and a past YPN Leadership Award Recipient. I value it so much that even in my current role as TRREB President, I am a volunteer on OREA’s YPN. YPN kept me engaged in wanting to do more for an industry we all love and has led me to stay active in organized real estate.”

Lisa Patel, Past President

Toronto Regional Real Estate Board
