NC REALTORS® Young Professionals Network (YPN) is a dynamic entry point for real estate professionals striving to become more successful in their careers and gain leadership experience.

Our mission is simple: to cultivate a modern, inclusive, creative culture of service and leadership development for the NC REALTORS® community. We follow a mantra of Learn, Lead, Serve:

  • LEARN. Through in-person events, social media, and mentoring, YPN members seek to share their knowledge and learn from one another.
  • LEAD. Many people who are new to the industry want to get involved with their local, state or national association, but they either don’t know how to go about it, or they find it too intimidating. YPN encourages members to explore leadership opportunities at all levels.
  • SERVE. YPN members demonstrate a high level of professionalism and volunteering for causes that spark their passion.


NC REALTORS® YPN Facebook Group

Let’s chat on Facebook! This group was started so NC-YPN’ers could come together and discuss what they’ve got going in their networks, share event ideas, place referral requests and curate ideas and leaders for the North Carolina real estate community.
