Elizabeth McCoy of Williams Trew Real Estate has been named the next president of the Greater Fort Worth Association of Realtors, according to an organizational press release.

On Jan. 15, GFWAR confirmed 2021 officers and members of the board of directors, including McCoy, who has been a member of the organization for nearly 20 years, the release said. Established in 1918, GFWAR represents more than 4,300 Realtors in the Fort Worth and broader Tarrant County areas.


“I am so proud of the work our 2020 president, Shelby Kimball, did for GFWAR amid a pandemic,” McCoy said in the release. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to lead our organization as we continue to navigate the challenges and celebrations in 2021.”

Additional board members elected include Shannon Ashiknos of JP & Associates as vice president; Bart Calahan with Coldwell Banker Realty as secretary-treasurer; and presidential appointees Callen Miller, with Indwell, and Barbara McMasters, with Genesis Masters Real Estate.

“Elizabeth [McCoy] is a highly respected leader in the real estate industry, and I am excited to see her continue her service to our association as 2021 president,” GFWAR CEO Robert Gleason said in the release. “With her dedicated stewardship, we can only expect continued success as an organization.”
