Members of the Young Professionals Network stood tall and proud at NAR’s 360 Thursday, waving U.S. flags in the air to symbolize their commitment to “10 for 10” – investing $10,000 to the REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC) over the next 10 years.
Christian Zarif with Better Homes and Gardens Kansas City and Matt Case with Coldwell Banker Schmidt Family Companies in Traverse City, Mich. (pictured right) are among the more than 50 practitioners who have taken the pledge targeted specifically for young professionals.
RPAC funds are used to promote the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates. “This is the next generation of REALTOR leaders stepping up to the plate,” said 2013 First Vice President Chris Polychron during the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in San Francisco.
