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.

  • IBM says to invest $3 bln in 'Internet of Things' unit
    The Armonk, New York-based technology company said its services will be based remotely in the cloud, and offer companies ways to make use of the new and multiplying sources of data such as building sensors, smartphones and home appliances to enhance their own products. For its first major partnership, IBM said a unit of the Weather Co will move its weather data services onto IBM's cloud, so that customers can use the data in tandem with IBM's analytics tools. As a result, IBM is hoping that companies will be able to combine live weather forecasting with a range of business data, so companies can quickly adapt to customer buying patterns or supply chain issues connected to the weather. For example, insurance companies could send messages to policyholders in certain areas when hailstorms are approaching and tell them safe places to park, saving money all round.
