Supporting and connecting Young Professionals Networks (YPNs) on their mission to create valuable opportunities for newer members of the REALTOR® community.

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.

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 Professional 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 YPB, 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.
