The Future of the Real Estate Industry

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. GTR launched the Tampa Young Professionals Network ( Tampa YPN) in August 2010 as a way to help the younger generation of REALTORS® build a stronger link with the Association and navigate the real estate industry.

The Young Professionals Network is a group catered to real estate professionals that are new to the industry and the young at heart. By signing up for our network, you will be kept in the loop when it comes to our YPN events, opportunities, and offerings! Please note, you will receive periodic updates via email and may receive invitations to GTR’s most popular events.

YPN Mission Statement:

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 their local, state, and national association.
  • 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. If you’re as excited as we are about furthering this mission, you’ve already accomplished the first step to starting a YPN!
