The Greater El Paso Association of REALTORS® named MLS industry veteran Jason Sanchez as its new CEO. Sanchez will lead the association with the retirement of Sharron Ramirez, who served as the association's CEO for 17 years. 

During Ramirez's tenure, the Greater El Paso Association of REALTORS® grew to become the largest trade association in El Paso, Texas. The association consists of more than 2,000 members. 

”While we are sad to have Sharron Ramirez retire, she leaves the association in great shape," said Board President Dan Olivas. "We wish her  the best in a well-deserved retirement."

Sanchez brings  more than 16 years of experience with the association to his new position. He also serves on multiple industry boards, associations, and councils. This includes Corelogic, Zillow, Project Upstream, and CMLS.

"I would like to thank the Greater El Paso Association of REALTORS’s leadership for having the confidence and trust to choose me as GEPAR's next CEO," he said. "I promise to continue the standard of excellence that GEPAR has established as an organization. I am deeply humbled and excited for the future and I will work tirelessly each and every day with our leadership, staff and members to take this association to new heights!"

Sanchez added that he wants to continue his work in making the association among the most progressive in the nation. Sanchez will officially assume the role of CEO on Jan. 2, 2018.

“Jason has served the association as MLS director for over 10 years. He has established a national reputation as a visionary and leader in the MLS Industry," said Olivas. "Jason has mentored under Sharron for serval years and his transition to become the executive director will be seamless. The future of the largest trade association in the city is in good hands with Jason Sanchez as its new CEO.” 

The Greater El Paso Association of REALTORS® is one of the first local associations founded by the National Association of REALTORS® in 1916. For 100 years, GEPAR has worked hard to not only ensure the protection of private property rights, but also the expansion of the opportunity for home ownership in the borderland.
