Congratulations to the 2014 10 Under 40 Honorees!

Recognizing the need to seek out the future leaders of our industry, the Columbus REALTORS® Young Professionals Network (YPN) launched the 10 Under 40 Awards in an effort to identify our industry's up-and-comers!

With an application period of only two weeks (Jan. 1 - Jan. 17, 2014), there was a cosmic response of high quality applications. The 10 Under 40 Task Force combed through over 40 applications, narrowing it down to just 10.

Our 10 honorees are not only successful in their real estate career but show enthusiasm, innovation and commitment in raising the bar in real estate.
