Hi! Amie Ferris here, the chair of OREA’s Young Professionals Network. I’m a young REALTOR® from Port Dover who is moving up through organized real estate. I’m currently the President of the Simcoe and District Real Estate Board and it is my absolute pleasure to be involved in the creation of OREA’s new YPN.
It was a personal goal of Barb Sukkau, OREA’s president to reach out to the youth of OREA’s membership and get them more involved in their provincial association. She speaks about the purpose of OREA’s YPN in this blog post. Young professionals are the future of the real estate business. REALTOR® YPN’s create a new generation of leaders, allows representation of all members, and taps into new ideas and fresh perspectives.
The OREA YPN working group has been formed and consists of around 15 REALTORS® that are meeting next week for the first time to create the Council of OREA’s Young Professionals Network and begin to plan the first networking event.
I’m excited to launch OREA’s YPN Facebook page and YPN blog stream to enable young REALTOR® professionals to network, and connect with each other and tap into valuable resources to help them succeed. If you would like to join the network, please enter your name and email to be notified of upcoming events & opportunities and like the OREA YPN Facebook page.
I look forward to connecting with you.
