Martinez, who was ranked the No. 1 Latino agent* in the nation in 2012, was installed yesterday as the 2013-2014 president of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) in a ceremony in Washington, D.C.

"If you ask nine out of 10 Hispanic families in the United States, 'Who is the best real estate company?' they will say, CENTURY 21," said Martinez. "The brand is well known in Latin America. My goal for CENTURY 21 Martinez & Associates is to earn 50 percent of the Hispanic market in Las Vegas. With the CENTURY 21 brand standing by my side, I know we can achieve our goal."

CENTURY 21 Martinez & Associates will focus on recruiting and training real estate sales professionals to best serve the Hispanic and multicultural communities.

"Juan Martinez has been a driving force in the Las Vegas real estate community for more than a decade and his leadership within the Hispanic community is well known across the country," said Rick Davidson, president & CEO, Century 21 Real Estate LLC, who attended a White House briefing with Martinez and NAHREP's leadership boards yesterday on issues including housing, finance, diversity, foreclosures and immigration. "Having Juan as a part of the CENTURY 21 family is a testament to our franchise's commitment to serving a culturally diverse marketplace. We are proud of Juan's leadership and accomplishments in the Hispanic community and congratulate him on his well-deserved appointment as NAHREP President."
