Casie McMurray was named association executive for the Livingston Parish Board of Realtors last week.

The Livingston Parish Board of Realtors said that McMurray will be responsible for operations of the association, which includes formulating and executing the association goals, objectives and policies and establishing and maintaining industry and community relations.

“We are very excited to have Casie on board,” said Kay Landry, president of the Livingston Board of Realtors. “There is so much growth in our parish and region. Casie brings technology and vision to the association.”

McMurray is a third-generation Livingston Parish resident. She is a graduate of Denham Springs High School and Southeastern Louisiana University, where she majored in public speaking. She has two children and is the owner and operator of Hot Denham, a mobile events guide for Livingston Parish. Previously, she worked as a grant and funding specialist for Alvin Fairburn & Associates. Her background includes 16 years in advertising, marketing and public relations.

“In the coming weeks and months, we will be working hard to bring the Livingston Board of Realtors to a new standard of Realtor Association management,” McMurray said. “So far, I have been graciously welcomed and I look forward to getting to know each of our members and affiliates.”

“I have known Casie personally and professionally for a long time. She has a vision and excitement that is well-suited to the needs and growth of Livingston Parish,” Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks said.

Executive Director of Dixie Business Center John Ware agrees, “I think she’s perfect for the job.

“She has a positive attitude and enthusiasm necessary to be on the front line in these exciting times for growth and investment in real estate.”
