Announcing the 2020 30 Under 30 Finalists

March 4, 2020

REALTOR® Magazine is proud to announce the 50 finalists vying for a place in the 20th anniversary class of 30 Under 30. Representing every region in the U.S., the candidates include residential and commercial agents, team leaders, team members, and brokers-in-charge. It’s fitting that in this special year—20 years after the first 30 Under 30 class was named in 2000—there are so many finalists involved in championing homeownership through political advocacy.

They have been a part of noble endeavors, such as revitalizing their communities, helping veterans become homeowners, supporting rural areas, and advocating for the real estate industry as volunteer leaders in their local and state REALTOR® associations. The group of 50 expects a lot of themselves so as to provide exemplary service to their clients. They take the time to educate home buyers and sellers, carefully walking them through every step of the transaction. And when they’re not working with clients, they’re serving on REALTOR® committees or creating welcoming, inclusive YPN groups.

Now they need your help.

Members of the public can help one finalist make it into the 30 Under 30 class of 2020 through online voting. Read the 50 finalists’ profiles and vote in the Web Choice Award contest starting on Friday, March 13, at noon Central time. (Note: Voting closed Friday, March 20, at noon Central time.) You can cast your vote for your favorite finalist by giving them a “like.” A free login account is required. Participants can vote once each day per candidate.

The finalist who receives the most votes is guaranteed a spot among this year’s 30 Under 30 and will be named the Web Choice Award winner. Judges will select the other 29 honorees from the field of finalists. This year’s 30 under 30 honorees, along with the the Web Choice winner, will be announced on Monday, March 23, on the 30 Under 30 home page and will be featured in the May-June issue of REALTOR® Magazine.

Without further ado, meet the 2020 30 Under 30 finalists:
