BROOKINGS REALTOR PAT PIPER EARNS LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

By Ellen Babin

Pilot staff writer

A span of 20 years in real estate has helped earn Pat Piper of Brookings the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Curry County Board of Realtors.

Piper has worked as a licensed broker for 15 years at Century 21 Agate Realty in Harbor and also is a licensed broker with Century 21 Hamilton Realty in Crescent City.

She was presented the award in early December during the annual Board of Realtors installation of officers.

"I am most proud of the award," Piper said.

The award is given by fellow realtors and when it is, it is rare, she explained. Only three others have received the title since the board's inception in 1974.

According to the Curry County Board of Director's (CCBD) newsletter, Piper received the award in recognition of her years of devoted and competent service to both the local Board of Realtors and state committees.

Piper has been active on many committees and in many board offices, and has been Realtor of the Year for 2000 and 2003. Many other awards pepper the walls of her Harbor office. She received a standing ovation when presented the Lifetime Achievement Award.

  • Asian shares fall for third day on global growth concerns
    Asian shares fell for a third straight day on Wednesday as weak manufacturing reports from China, the United States and Europe fueled worries about slowing global growth, while the safe-haven Japanese yen firmed as investors unwound carry trades. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 1.2 percent by late morning, taking its losses to nearly 4 percent so far this week as investors continued to dump emerging market assets. While signs of an emerging market slowdown has been evident for a while in the form of falling commodity prices and weak trade growth, investors had been broadly sanguine on the hopes that robust demand from the U.S. and China would keep the global growth engines chugging along.
  • Factory slowdown puts wrinkle in U.S. growth outlook
    U.S. factory activity braked to a more than two-year low in August, but sturdy gains in automobile sales and construction spending suggested the economy remained on solid footing. The sharp slowdown in manufacturing, which has been hurt by a strong dollar and deep spending cuts in the energy sector, was probably an early indication of fallout from the recent turmoil in stock markets, economists said. "It suggests that the recent eruption in uncertainty toward Chinese and global growth is beginning to affect U.S. business decisions," said Millan Mulraine, deputy chief economist at TD Securities in New York.
  • Oil prices extend losses on U.S. oil inventory, manufacturing data
    Oil prices fell around 2 percent in early Asian trade on Wednesday, as a stronger than expected build in U.S. crude oil stocks and weaker U.S. manufacturing data fueled a rout in prices that started in the previous session. Brent and U.S. crude finished around 8 percent lower on Tuesday to end a 25-percent three-session surge, the largest three-day gain since 1990. This rollercoaster volatility could continue especially if there are similar wild swings in the equity markets, said Ric Spooner, chief market analyst at Sydney's CMC Markets.
