We were so excited to wake up to the article "Meet The Young Guns Reviving The Art Of Networking For Real Estate Graduates" by Bisnow the other morning!

The article really highlighted some key points for us about why our co-founders and the whole team are so passionate about this new network.

People assume (quite wrongly in our opinion) that it is so easy for young people to network in the modern day. That everything is done digitally and our reliance on social media has made us unable to socialise face to face.

Our co-founders definitely disagree with this notion that we are all glued to our phones and are dominated by social media.

Harri thinks that this assumption is "definitely a cliché” and Rosanna points out that while social media can be a good way of finding people, people still want to "meet the person behind the online profile or the phone, and that is how the best connections are made".

Certainly, the success our launch event that drew in over 300 attendees and featured speakers that included   Greg Miley from WeWork and Andrea Carpenter, founder of Women Talk Real Estate, proves that young proffessionals really do want more events off of their phones!

Overall, CREation was set up for everyone to provide free events that are informative and crucially fun. As our co-founder Rosanna says, “neither of us come from families that have a background in property or went to traditional property universities, when I started in the industry I didn’t really know anyone, and it can be a bit daunting, and we wanted to create something that was welcoming to everyone.”

The goal of creating a warm environment where young proffessionals can interact and advance is one that we hold at the centre of everything that we do. Keep up-to-date with everything CREation is up to by signing up to our mailing list (we do promise that we do not spam you) and check out our future events.

Thank you so much to Bisnow for featuring our network and be sure to check out the full article here.
