“It was crucial for me to find other individuals who have my same mindset and my same goals. People who take the business as seriously as I do. It’s what MIAMI YPN is all about.” --- MIAMI YPN Chairman Jorge H. Fernandez
MIAMI (PRWEB) May 22, 2018
The MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI) is pleased to announce Miami native Jorge H. Fernandez as the 2018 chairman of the MIAMI Young Professionals Network (MIAMI YPN). Fernandez and the 2018 YPN Board were installed at MIAMI’s 2018 Inaugural and Awards Celebration.
MIAMI’s YPN Council is a dynamic group of young professionals dedicated to supporting the growth and professionalism of the South Florida real estate community. It’s a group that won the Young Professional Network of the Year from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) in 2017 for its efforts in promoting professional collaboration through social and community involvement.
“When I first got into this business, I looked for a sense of belonging. A sense of ‘Hey, I’m not in this by myself,’” Fernandez said. “It was crucial for me to find other individuals who have my same mindset and my same goals. People who take the business as seriously as I do. It’s what MIAMI YPN is all about.”
Fernandez is a broker at Caribe Homes Realty in Miami. He attended Florida International University in Miami and Florida State University in Tallahassee.
The son of Cuban immigrants, Fernandez earned his real estate license in October 2010.
Under the tutelage of Caribe Homes Realty Principal and 2013 MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI) Residential President Fernando Martinez, Fernandez has developed into a top Realtor. Fernandez quickly became Caribe Homes Realty’s top sales agent which gave him the credibility to become the company's broker of record.
After years as a MIAMI YPN leader, Fernandez was elected as chairman. MIAMI YPN started as a group of 15 young professionals in 2010 and has now blossomed to more than 1,300 members. The MIAMI YPN Leadership Board oversees three different chapters in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.
MIAMI completed almost 20 projects in 2017, and has already participated in several community service projects in 2018. In February 2018, MIAMI Realtors and MIAMI YPN hosted a Better Block celebration to launch the new MKTPlace, which featured a new bright and colorful mural, at Goombay Plaza in Coconut Grove. In April 2018, MIAMI YPN helped plant 2,000 dune plants to restore our natural coastline at Virginia Key North Point Park.
