2022 YAP Happy Hours

As an organizing partner for Young Athens Professionals (YAP), the Athens Area Chamber helps to provide an opportunity for monthly networking events geared towards career-minded young adults in the early stages of their careers. The monthly YAP Happy Hours are casual open-house style networking events that offer a chance to socialize with other young professionals while patronizing a different business every month. YAP events are free and open to the public.

Join the Young Athens Professionals on Thursday, June 9 from 5-7pm for our June Happy Hour at Jackie O’s Taproom! Come enjoy some delicious food (including vegetarian and vegan options) and locally crafted beers, hang out on their spacious patio (we’ll also have tables reserved inside), and engage in quality networking with local young professionals!

Many thanks to Uptown Realty Group for sponsoring the complimentary appetizers that Jackie O’s will be preparing for our June event!


Uptown Realty Group is a newly formed, full-service, boutique real estate brokerage headquartered in the Athens Uptown neighborhood at the historic Pilcher House located on 10 E Union St. We specialize in three distinct areas of real estate practice:

  1. management of a select portfolio of residential and commercial property within the City of Athens
  2. assisting, representing and advising buyers and sellers of residential and commercial property in the Athens County and Central Ohio region
  3. commercial development of new properties and renovation of existing locations within the City of Athens

Our rental portfolio features lofts, renovated historic homes, new construction, and high-quality single-family homes and apartments in the city of Athens with a focus on uptown and the near eastside neighborhood. We also manage commercial properties and have made it our mission to participate and lead in the constant reimagining and redefining of the Athens business landscape. In addition to the City of Athens, Uptown Realty Group operates The Port Campground and Docks, which is a seasonal RV campground with 173 lots located on the Hocking River near to the mouth of the Ohio River in Hockingport, OH.

Our Principal Broker and Uptown Realty Group member, Bob Prebe, started as a Real Estate professional in Property Management. He managed a diverse portfolio of residential and commercial properties throughout Athens County, from Albany to Trimble (and every little community in between). Over the past 18 years, Bob has worked with 1000’s of residential and commercial clients, buyers, sellers, developers, and investors throughout the region.

The other two members of Uptown Realty Group, Kurt and Teresa Montle, are longtime residents of the Athens community. Their investment portfolio is focused within the City of Athens, specifically geared towards the Ohio University and Uptown Athens community and concurrently within the near Eastside neighborhoods. Kurt and Teresa have tremendous experience and expertise in real estate development, construction, and business and are very active within the community.
