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.

  • Jobs report may test market's complacency
    The U.S. stock market has been quiet this week - too quiet. Wall Street has traded in a tight range of late, with both volatility and trading volumes drying up as the earnings season winds down and Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's recent Congressional testimony delivered no surprises. About 238,000 jobs are expected to have been added in February, according to the non-farm payroll report that will be released on Friday, down from the 257,000 added in January. "Economic data will be the biggest driver of market moves over the next month, and the key one is the jobs report," said Jim McDonald, chief investment strategist at Chicago-based Northern Trust Asset Management.
  • U.S. economy slowed in fourth quarter, but growth outlook still favorable
    U.S. economic growth braked more sharply than initially thought in the fourth quarter amid a moderate increase in business inventories and a wider trade deficit, but strong domestic demand brightened the outlook. Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.2 percent annual pace, revised down from the 2.6 percent pace estimated last month, the Commerce Department said on Friday. The economy grew at a 5 percent rate in the third quarter. Businesses accumulated $88.4 billion worth of inventory in the fourth quarter, far less than the $113.1 billion the government had estimated last month.
  • Dudley, top U.S. economists urge later Fed rate hike
    Raising interest rates too late is safer than acting too early, an influential Federal Reserve official said on Friday, endorsing a high-profile research paper that argues the U.S. economy, given time, can rebound to the strong growth rate to which Americans are accustomed. The paper by four top U.S. economists, presented on Friday to a roomful of powerful central bankers in New York, argues the Fed would be wise to keep rates at rock bottom for longer than planned and then tighten monetary policy more aggressively. New York Fed President William Dudley, who offered a critique of the paper, cited currently low inflation and warned against being too anxious to tighten monetary policy. The U.S. central bank is in the global spotlight as it weighs when to lift rates after more than six years near zero, and how quickly to tighten policy thereafter.
