Brookings realtor Amy Myrah receives award of excellence

Amy Myrah of Beckley and Company Real Estate is one of eight realtors in Oregon chosen by Realtor.com to receive the Real Estate Online Marketing Award of Excellence. 

The Award of Excellence recognizes top agents who consistently provide great marketing services on behalf of their sellers. This will be her second consecutive year to receive the award.

“There are always some real estate agents who distinguish themselves from other agents by doing a little more for their sellers – and Amy Myrah is one of them,” said Max Pigman, vice president of Realtor.com. 

“In particular, when the homes they are listing are placed on well-trafficked real estate sites, even simple efforts like having more photos displayed, crafting better descriptions or adding a full- motion video, can make a home stand out from competing properties,” Pigman said.

“The extra steps agents like Amy are taking on behalf of their clients is the reason we thought it worthwhile to call out the effort we have seen these agents make online and to recognize them for providing these added value services,” Pigman said.

Myrah said, “I believe that aggressive Internet marketing is a crucial part of a home marketing plan, since so many buyers use the Internet to find their next home.  With so many listings on the market, I want to make sure that my sellers’ properties stand out so that no potential buyer opportunities are missed.”

Myrah was the only realtor in Curry County to receive the Award of Excellence  both years.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
