Riley installed as National Association of Realtors treasurer

Tom Riley, of Bedford, founder of Riley Enterprises and former president of the New Hampshire Association of Realtors, was installed as 2017 National Association of Realtors treasurer Monday in Orlando, site of the NAR.

Riley is the first ever New Hampshire Realtor to become a member of the NAR Leadership Team.

"I am thrilled to have Tom on board as 2017 treasurer," said NAR President Bill Brown of Alamo, Calif. "His exemplary leadership skills, financial acumen and over 35 years of dedicated experience in the real estate industry makes him a perfect fit for this role.

"I look forward to achieving great success together over the next year on behalf of the more than 1.2 million Realtors throughout the country."

Riley’s career in real estate spans more than 35 years and includes service at every volunteer level of the Realtor association. He was the Greater Manchester/Nashua Board of Realtors president in 1998 and treasurer from 2001-06, and the New Hampshire Association of Realtors president in 2011 and treasurer from 2006-08.

He served as the National Association of Realtors’ vice president for Region 1, including the six New England States, in 2015, and he previously served on the NAR Board of Directors from 2007-08 and 2010-13.

"I’m humbled," Riley said. "More importantly, I’m ready to do the hard work at the national level that will appropriately represent the ethic of our great state."

"This is a very proud moment for New Hampshire, not only among our Realtor community but for the state as a whole," said NHAR President Al Michalovic, who was among a strong New Hampshire contingent to join Riley at the installation event.

"Tom has no doubt earned this position through his incredible business sense, as well as his steadfast dedication to our industry and to our members."
