About NAIOP Washington State's Mentor Program

The NAIOP mentorship program matches up young professionals and students with seasoned industry veterans for informal, monthly meetings to share ideas, discuss professional development and talk real estate in a casual atmosphere.

One ongoing mentor says:

The advantage of this program for a real estate professional such as me is that I get to interact and network with a broader range of individuals from the real estate and development community. I see mentoring as a means of recruiting talent to our industry and fostering an exchange of perspectives from the next generation of industry professionals.

The time commitment is just an hour per month, and the benefits for both mentors and mentees can be quite substantial. Monthly meetings run January through June, beginning with a kick-off event in January and moving on to one-on-one meetings.

  • January: Kick-Off Event | TBA
  • February - May (4 pairings): Monthly one-on-one meetings with an industry expert and leader in the NAIOP community. 
  • June: Closing event | TBA

NAIOPWA's mentorship program is an opportunity to build lasting connections in which Developing Leaders may learn professional skills such as executive presence, leadership, management and networking. The mentorship program is not intended as an opportunity to further sales goals or to seek future prospects during one-and-one mentoring interactions.
