2023 IREM 30 Under 30

IREM is proud to recognize 30 exceptional next-generation leaders

By Journal of Property Management

The real estate industry is undergoing a transformative shift, driven by changing market dynamics, technological advancements, and evolving consumer preferences. Amid this transformation, a new generation of young professionals is stepping up and leading the real estate management industry into the future.

IREM’s 30 Under 30 showcases the diverse talents and accomplishments of young professionals who demonstrate exceptional skill, leadership, innovation, and involvement in their local communities. This year’s recipients represent 24 different chapters, as well as IREM’s international membership.

Since the program’s inception in 2017, IREM has recognized 210 members, each with a unique story to share and an individual impact made on both the industry and IREM. Many of these members went on to serve in leadership roles in their chapters, as IREM volunteers, and even on the IREM Board of Directors.

The achievements of these individuals not only inspire their peers, but also reinforce the notion that the future of real estate management is in capable hands. With their passion, dedication, and forward-thinking mindset, these members are set to shape the industry for years to come.
