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.
