Meet the 2016 30 Under 30 Finalists

March 9, 2016

REALTOR® Magazine is pleased to announce the final 50 hopefuls in the countdown to naming the 30 Under 30 class of 2016. Breaking through the stereotypes of the "video game generation," these millennials' success stories are setting the bar for young entrepreneurs industry-wide. Each finalist brings joy and passion to the real estate world, as evidenced by their keen work ethic, commitment to their communities, and determination to thrive amidst fierce competition.

We look forward to sharing more about these young leaders when their profiles are published on March 18 right here on our website. At that time, you, the reader, will have the opportunity to help one of the 50 win the Web Choice Award and land a spot in the 30 Under 30.

From noon CT on Friday, March 18, to noon CT on Friday, March 25, members of the public will be able to vote for their favorite finalist. You may vote for each candidate once per day. The finalist who collects the most votes is guaranteed a spot among this year's 30 Under 30. Judges will select the other 29 honorees from the field of finalists below. Stay tuned for more information on the 30 Under 30 home page.
