Watch out OREA, YPN is on the move!

After two outstanding years sitting on the OREA YPN committee I now have the honour of becoming the Chair and watching this awesome committee, and growing real estate movement, grow and flourish in the upcoming year. We have started the proverbial ball rolling within our committee by watching each member email the group a video of themselves explaining a little about what they would like to see in the upcoming year and something about themselves. Let me be the first to say that we have a crazy strong group of Realtors ® that are ready to rock your socks off with new ideas and concepts for our members.

I am open to hearing from members of the YPN as to what they would like to see from their provincial association and please feel free to find me on Facebook and contact me at any time (@Jenn Aunger-Ritchie)

  2. Wife to her banker / volunteer firefighter / fellow Laurier Alum / TV addict / Beer lover Hubby- Nick

  4. Is a Director on the Rideau St. Lawrence Real Estate Board
  5. Is a second generation Realtor ® to CREA’s President-Elect
