REach® Class of 2015


NAR has a venture capital group called Second Century Ventures. Second Century has a program called REach®. REach® seeks to invest with young entrepreneurs and business leaders for companies that are related to real estate.

One aspect of REach® is the mentor program.

I’m proud to be a participant in the mentor program with the REach® class of 2015. As senior advisers, we seek to mentor these young entrepreneurs and help them grow their companies.

As REach® mentors we have several opportunities throughout the year to meet with them, counsel with them, and learn about their problems and goals.

We try to help in anyway we can.

I am so proud that the National Association of REALTORS® is taking a leadership position and encouraging young entrepreneurs and business growth in our economy today.
