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.

  • New data shows Americans' incomes still stagnant after recession
    In what has become a recurring theme in America's long slog back from the 2007-09 recession, most U.S. A report from the Census Bureau on Tuesday showed the country's median household income edged up just $180 last year to $51,939, a gain deemed statistically insignificant. The figures make it easier to understand why many Americans think the United States remains in recession and why President Barack Obama's approval ratings have hovered near 40 percent. Obama took office a few months before the recession ended in June 2009, and a frustratingly slow economic recovery has vexed his presidency and could weigh on his Democratic Party in November's congressional elections.
