A Las Vegas native, Chris Bishop will be GLVAR’s president in 2018. At age 34, he will become one of the youngest people to ever serve as president of the association.
Chris was raised in the shadows of downtown Las Vegas, attending and graduating from Trinity High School. Growing up in a family of real estate professionals, his own real estate career took root in 2003 as a support role at one of the larger brokerages in the valley. Two years later, he obtained his real estate license.
His first year in the business was rewarding and successful as he was named Rookie of the Year for the entire firm. Since 2013, Chris has been a Coldwell Banker Premier Realty branch manager, instrumental in bringing his forward-thinking mentality, real estate skill set and contagious positivity to grow and expand the offices he leads.
Chris has been highly involved with the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors, serving on various committees, in addition to the board of directors. He was a GLVAR director for three years before being elected as GLVAR’s treasurer in 2014.
With his extensive pedigree in the local real estate community, serving the GLVAR and its members is a natural fit for him. Both of his parents served as GLVAR president, and he has seen, first-hand, the positive impact that can be made by the right individual in the important role of president. Chris loves to share his talents within the industry by serving the local real estate community in one of the best and most honorable professions that exist.
