Peter Freeman, the president and chief executive officer of the Honolulu Board of Realtors, has left his position, according to a board official.
Karena Yee, the board's acting chief executive, said she could not provide any details about Freeman's departure except that he was no longer with the board as of July 8.
She also said she had no knowledge of Freeman's possible replacement.
Calls to Freeman and to Guy Tamashiro, the board's chairman, were not returned yesterday.
Bob DeYoung, a director of the board, said: "Peter Freeman is no longer with the Honolulu Board of Realtors, and that's the extent of it at this point."
Several other board officers and directors did not return calls yesterday.
The Honolulu board has about 3,700 members, who are licensed real estate brokers and agents, according to its web site.
Among its other activities, the board prepares monthly statistical reports on single-family home and condominium resale activity on O'ahu.
As president and chief executive, Freeman was part of the board's staff. The board chairman is a rotating position, filled by a member of the real estate industry.
