Covington Real Estate awards

Spotlight

Covington and Associates held their 2014 awards banquet on Tuesday to celebrate another year of competitive real estate sales in Livingston Parish. It was a banner year for real estate, and Lawson Covington believes his company — and his agents — were at the forefront. The agents honored were at the top of the market in sales volume and, according to Covington, represent “the best Realtors in the business.” “They were instrumental in guiding so many residential and commercial customers down the right path in 2014,” Covington said. “The real estate market is flourishing and these people are really moving and selling Livingston Parish.” Covington went on to say that he hopes to continue to represent real estate in Livingston Parish, and he will continue to work for the loyalty of his customers. Pictured are (sitting, from left) Aaron Goolsby, Kerry Efferson, Claudia Kistrup, Kelli Varnado, Crystal Holland, Rebecca Neale-Jacob, Sherry Stears and (standing) Kayla Johnson, Robert Perry, Kay Landry, Kristen Goodwin, Lisa Carlton, Mary Ann Easley, Lawson Covington, Charmaine Vernon, Barbara Coxe, Diane Milton, Teresa LaGroue, Rachel Blount, Terri Covington and Michele Morales. Award winners not pictured are Jason Harris, Brittany Chemin, Sandra Brewer and Kristina Mixon.
