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.

  • Look to energy names for global demand clues
    Profit growth expectations for S&P 500 energy companies have fallen more than any other sector - from a forecast of 13.8 percent on July 1 to the current 1.8 percent, Thomson Reuters data showed. With various names due to report next week, including Exxon Mobil (XOM.N), Chevron (CVX.N), ConocoPhillips (COP.N) and National Oilwell Varco (NOV.N), there are hopes that executives will suggest that the fall in oil and share prices has overstated the outlook for these names. The energy sector over the last 20 weeks has spiraled from being the market leader to now ranking as its most distant laggard, according to a Relative Rotation Graph study, which analyzes the relative performance of the constituents of an index. The S&P energy sector up about 6 percent from Oct. 15, while the S&P 500 is up 5.5 percent from its Oct. 15 low and the benchmark index on Friday posted its best weekly gain since early January 2013.

  • China's auto market growth may halve to 7 percent this year: industry body head
    Growth in China's auto market, the world's biggest, will halve to 7 percent this year weighed down by a slowing economy, the head of an industry body said on Saturday. "Personally, I think growth this year can reach 7 percent," Dong Yang, secretary general of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), told reporters on the sidelines of an industry conference in Shanghai. The auto industry would reflect that but typically lags the economic cycle by a bit." CAAM had forecast China's auto market, which grew by 13.9 percent last year, to expand at 8.3 percent in 2014.
