CUPERTINO, Calif. - June 23, 2016 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Intero Real Estate Services, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate and wholly owned subsidiary of HomeServices of America, Inc., launched a company-specific Young Professionals Network (YPN). The intention of the Intero YPN is to provide resources and a network for the fresh and talented real estate agents within the company.
The Intero YPN provides quarterly events that allow Intero agents to interact and share ideas with other like-minded agents within the company. In addition, the Intero YPN secures some of the most amazing and informative speakers including the likes of Brian Boero, author and founder of 1000watt, a marketing and strategy consulting firm, who was the guest speaker for the inaugural event. The Intero YPN is also making use of the social sphere by creating a Facebook Group that will allow members to instantly share ideas and information that will raise the bar for all participants.
As the shift continues to move to a younger, more diversified generation, the necessity for a more compatible and relatable real estate agent has become paramount. Mike D’Ambrosio, a leading sales manager at Intero will be leading the Intero YPN venture and anticipates the future of real estate professionals in the Bay Area to hit a fever pitch with the continued influx of young, internet-based minds.
“The real estate climate in the Bay Area is changing. The trend we’re seeing is that the new buyer is a younger and more upward technology-forward professional,” stated Mr. D’Ambrosio. “With Intero’s Young Professionals Network, we want to cultivate today's young leaders to further their knowledge and careers in the real estate profession so they can properly assist this new client.”
By creating a forum for young, talented real estate professionals, Intero and its YPN program intend to create a space for like-minded, progressive individuals to not only achieve their goals as real estate agents, but also to see the market for what it is.
“I’m thrilled we’re taking hold of the reins by emphasizing the importance of creating avenues for talented young agents to thrive,” said Tom Tognoli, Intero President & Chief Executive Officer. “Shifting technology and shifting markets make it necessary to see the market with new eyes.”
