ELKO, Nev. — An Elko real estate agent is now the head of a statewide trade association.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports (http://bit.ly/2cyhd2O ) that Greg Martin of Coldwell Banker Algerio/Q-Team Realty has been named president of the Nevada Association of Realtors. His one-year term will begin in 2017.

Martin says as Elko is a small community within the state, a local agent being named president of the association is a high distinction. The last time an Elko real estate agent held the position was in 1995.

The Nevada Association of Realtors has approximately 15,000 members throughout the state and has five local associations.
