Select Random Record in Each Group

Hi all,
I'm trying to figure out how to randomly select one record per group.  The below code works great if you want to get the first, second, third, etc... record per group; but I can't figure out how to get a random record per group.  The number of records in each group varies as well.

;WITH CTE AS
(
	SELECT 
		ITEM_KEY
		,PROPERTY
		,EMAIL,
		ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY PROPERTY ORDER BY PROPERTY) AS RN
	FROM SURVEY_2015 
)
SELECT * 
FROM CTE WHERE RN = 1
GROUP BY PROPERTY, EMAIL, ITEM_KEY, RN
ORDER BY PROPERTY
