Residential real estate and technology company SRE has promoted Rob Young to the position of executive vice president.

Residential real estate and technology company SRE (Smart Real Estate) sells properties nationwide, including the Big Island.

As executive vice president, Young is in charge of the company’s rapid expansion, which provides full service for home buyers and sellers at low commission rates.

He will also oversee SRE’s real estate services network, which connects home buyers and sellers with SRE agents nationwide, manages its sales and marketing division, and serves on the strategic management committee.

Young joined SRE in August 2015 as real estate sales executive.


“I am pleased to be leading SRE as we continue to expand to new markets and make buying a home just a little less expensive for consumers,” said Young. “We look forward to continuing to build our services through new technologies and hope to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ for home buyers.”


Young has more than 10 years of experience as a top-performing sales and marketing executive, and was a vice president of sales and marketing for Covenant Retirement Communities in Chicago, and vice president and general manager of Lowe Enterprises, a national real estate and resort developer. Prior to that, Young was a reporter at KGMB for nearly eight years.

Founded in Honolulu in 2014, SRE is a full-service real estate company that developed a technology and a business model that allows it to save homebuyers thousands of dollars on commission. With more than 2 million listings nationwide and offices in 37 states, SRE is able to provide potential homebuyers with savings.

“While the traditional brokerage commission rate is 6%, SRE does not take more than 1%,”added Young. “Our clients save an average of $20,000 when buying or selling a home with SRE. Purchasing a home is already a huge investment, we want to make home ownership just a little easier and more affordable.”
