The 50 young professionals in the running for REALTOR® Magazine’s 30 Under 30 class of 2024 embody innovation, determination and selflessness. Many entered the field after experiencing life-changing events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Others knew from an early age that they wanted to create change and serve their communities through real estate. Whether starting their own brokerages, bridging homeownership gaps through community outreach or developing creative video marketing campaigns, these pros have proactive, problem-solving mindsets that have framed their careers and helped them overcome challenges in new ways. They’ve shown poise in a difficult market, helping pave the way for the next generation of homeowners.

Now these 50 finalists seek your support. Voting for the Web Choice Award begins on Wednesday, April 3, at noon CT. You will be able to read more about the finalists in their online profiles and vote for your favorites by giving them a "like" once every 24 hours per candidate until the voting period closes on April 10 at noon CT. The finalist with the most votes secures a spot in the 30 Under 30 and earns special recognition in an online article. The other 29 honorees will be selected by judges from the pool of finalists.
