'Real Estate Weekly': B.R. realtor named Louisiana Realtor of the Year
David McKey, broker-owner of Coldwell Banker One in Baton Rouge, has been named the Louisiana Realtor of the Year by Louisiana Realtors. His reward? "They doubled my salary … to exactly zero dollars," McKey jokes. "Actually, I was given a very, very nice award, and the greatest honor is just to be recognized by your peers." McKey is a former president of the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors and the current president-elect of Louisiana Realtors, meaning he'll take over the helm of the state association next year. He was presented with the award at a banquet that was part of Louisiana Realtors' Spring Conference in Baton Rouge last week. McKey says he's following in the footsteps of his wife, Andrea, a fellow broker and business partner, who was named the Louisiana Realtor of the Year in 2005 and was president of the state association in 2007. The McKeys have owned and operated Coldwell Banker One for 18 years, and have five children. "I believe in the association and what it does for the issues realtors and homeowners face," McKey says. "I feel the need to be active and volunteer and give back as much as I can because this industry has given us so much." McKey is also active with the National Realtors Association and will be the vice president of the Texas and Louisiana region in 2014.
