RE/MAX INTEGRA launched the Young Professionals Network (YPN) in April 2020 to offer Agents under the age of 40 a platform to connect with like-minded realtors and share their wide-ranging experience across the entire Ontario-Atlantic Canada region. Jessica Botelho and Taleen Mirzayan are just two Agents of many, who have joined YPN.
As second generation RE/MAX Agents, both Jessica and Taleen are proud enthusiasts and advocates of the RE/MAX Brand. Jessica’s father, a Broker and a very notable member of the RE/MAX Family, had first introduced Jessica to the brand, which played a large role in her life growing up. When she first began her real estate career, the choice to join RE/MAX was an easy one.
Similarly to Jessica, Taleen’s mother had started her career with another real estate organization, but joined RE/MAX shortly after seeing the level of comradery and the strength of the RE/MAX Brand. Brand played a big role in both families, and it is something that they continue to celebrate in their careers today.
“In order for my business to grow in the direction I wanted to, I needed to be in the environment that RE/MAX offered.” - Taleen Mirzayan
Jessica and Taleen were big advocates for the start of RE/MAX Young Professionals Network, as they knew how great the impact of having a network of young professionals celebrating the RE/MAX culture would be. Now, thanks to the efforts of these two Agents and many others, the RE/MAX YPN is a successful and active hub to share industry tips, tricks of the trade, referrals, and connect with others across the region.
While the YPN has only been in operation since April, Jessica and Taleen have both already experienced the benefits of membership.
“It provides the opportunity to network with those who you may not have been able to connect with before. Building connections within other markets and understanding other markets - that is something you can learn from and apply in your own business practices.” - Jessica Botelho
Being a part of this community allows you to develop meaningful and long-lasting relationships with like-minded individuals, and share different experiences and knowledge of the industry.
“The overall connections and support we have for eachother is the biggest gain.” - Jessica Botelho
As District Leaders, they have taken on the responsibility to represent their region, help with networking referrals, inspire other Agents to join, and ultimately showcase all that being a part of the RE/MAX Brand has to offer.
“If you’re an Agent under 40, it’s the best club to be a part of - because it’s so new and it offers a wealth of resources and opportunities. We know the potential of the YPN and it’s growing.” - Taleen Mirzayan
They are both thrilled to be a part of a community that offers the young professionals of RE/MAX the chance to network, collaborate and various opportunities to better their business.
