LIBOR’s YPN Hosts YPN a Mix and Mingle at Two


The rain could not deter the crowd of Realtors® from attending LIBOR’s Young Professional Network (YPN) Mixer held on November 29th at TWO Steak & Sushi Den, in New Hyde Park.   It was an exciting evening of delicious food, drinks and networking; organized seamlessly by YPN President Kate Koplinka of Coldwell Banker M & D Good life and her YPN leadership team.  Throughout the night, Realtors® had the opportunity to speak with the “Young Professionals” of LIBOR and MLSLI, learning how to get involved with both associations and how to best utilize all of the product and services they have to offer.  A great time was had by all!

YPN is an organization that helps young real estate professionals excel in their careers by giving them the tools and encouragement to become successful in their career.

The Young Professionals Network (YPN) began in 2006 and was started by Realtor® Magazine as a way to help the younger generation of REALTORS® build a stronger link with the real estate industry. In 2009, YPN began to expand its network by encouraging local and state associations to use the YPN model to start their own young professional’s network. In 2011, the Long Island Board of Realtors® is proud to join the YPN movement and established a YPN chapter for Long Island that supports members in Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk counties.

Young professionals represent the future of the real estate industry.  Members of the YPN represent the next generation of leaders in our association and our community.  Learn how you can get involved with the Long Island chapter of YPN by clicking here.
