HOT SPRINGS (AP) - A real estate agent from Hot Springs has been named to the top post in a national trade organization.

Polychron says he's worked for about seven years toward leadership in the organization, having first run in 2007. He said he's been on the organization's board of directors since 2002 and was a regional vice president in 2005 for territory that includes Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.

He told The Sentinel-Record the organization lobbies in Washington, D.C., to protect mortgage interest tax deductions and on other issues.
