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.

  • China shares lead Asia higher, dollar buoyed
    Asian stocks shrugged off a drop in Wall Street and hovered near three-year highs on Monday, with China taking the lead after data showed a robust jump in profits earned by industrial firms in the world's second-largest economy. The two-day Federal Reserve policy review ending on Wednesday was also in focus but expectations were for Chair Janet Yellen to deliver the usual dovish message.
  • JP Morgan questioned on private bank impropriety: WSJ
    As a result of the questioning regarding potential conflicts of interest, the New York-based bank has sharpened its disclosures to clients, the newspaper said, citing sources. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, one of JP Morgan's regulators, has been in discussions with the bank regarding the potential conflicts of interest in recent months, according to the report. "Being transparent is part of our normal course of business and it's what drives our client communications," Darin Oduyoye, a spokesman for JP Morgan's asset-management unit, told Reuters on Sunday. If brokers push clients to buy the in-house brand of financial product, rather than provide impartial financial advice, the bank could stand to benefit at the expense of the client.
  • Pfizer's need for deal looms larger with earnings report
    Pfizer Inc's vulnerability to cheaper generics and its weak roster of experimental medicines will be on display Tuesday when the company reports quarterly earnings, reviving interest in its pursuit of AstraZeneca Plc or other deals to fortify its pipeline. While many industry watchers expect Pfizer to re-engage with Britain's AstraZeneca in coming months, some say the U.S. drugmaker should consider targets more focused on biotechnology, a strategy that has paid off for Merck & Co and Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. Although Pfizer is conducting trials of promising products - including breast cancer drug palbociclib and vaccines against meningitis and staph aureus - it needs far more drugs to generate meaningful sales growth, said Ori Hershkovitz, analyst with the Tel Aviv-based Sphera Fund, which holds Pfizer shares.     "Pfizer is in a very desperate spot, having seen most of its pipeline disappoint and facing multiple patent expirations," he said.
