Young Professionals Network 

 The Next Generation of Real Estate

Iowa Association of REALTORS® Young Professionals Network (YPN)

IAR started the YPN group with these goals:

  1. Social and Networking opportunities – enable agents across the state to be able to get to know each other, to help agents run their business and to generate more referral opportunities.
  2. Education and Training – provide opportunities for professional growth and continuing education.
  3. Involvement – Get REALTORS® involved early in their local boards/associations and RPAC to further their understanding of our industry and shape the future of real estate in Iowa. Also, YPN wishes to get the young professionals more involved in the local communities throughout Iowa.
