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.

  • Carey pressured from both sides of Fox Time Warner deal to stay in job
    LOS ANGELES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Chase Carey, Twenty-First Century Fox's president and chief operating officer, may be feeling pressure to stay in his job for several more years both from his boss, Rupert Murdoch, and from the company Murdoch is trying to buy, Time Warner Inc. As Murdoch mulls his next step following Time Warner’s rejection of his $80 billion offer, some Time Warner investors say they are concerned about who might succeed the 83-year-old chairman and chief executive. In particular, they're not sure whether Murdoch's sons, James, 41, and Lachlan, 42, are ready to manage the integration challenge. The 60-year-old New Yorker, who's been working for Murdoch since 1988 and earned a reputation for a no-nonsense leadership style, signed a two-year contract with Fox in June that gives him the option to opt out after 18 months.
