GROUP NAMES VANDERMEER 2007 'REALTOR OF THE YEAR'

The Curry County Board of Realtors named Cy Vandermeer "Realtor of the Year" for 2007.

He was recognized by his peers for his outstanding contributions not only to the Curry County Board of Realtors but to the community as well.

Vandermeer served as board president during the 2007 calendar year, and for the past three years he served as board representative on the Service Advisory Committee of the Regional Multiple Listing Service. Committee members from around the state meet monthly with executives from the Regional Multiple Listing Service to promote and achieve the most efficient and effective technical services possible to its membership.

As president of the board he actively promotes member support for the local food bank, Habitat for Humanity and the Oasis Shelter Home.

For many years Vandermeer has provided outstanding vocal entertainment for board members attending the annual new board member installation dinner and meeting. He is a frequent participant at many local music events throughout the Brookings-Harbor community.

  • Asian shares rise, U.S. jobs data in focus
    Asian shares shrugged off weak U.S. data overnight that raised concerns ahead of Friday's key employment figures, and logged gains on Thursday as investors covered positions ahead of the Easter holidays.
  • Oil retreats from large jump as focus returns to Iran talks
    Oil prices fell on Thursday as attention returned to nuclear talks with Iran, with the prospects for a deal and an increase in Iranian crude exports helping to keep pressure on prices. Major powers and Iran have stretched talks on Tehran's nuclear program into a second day past an end-March deadline, with diplomats saying prospects for a preliminary deal were balanced between success and collapse in the coming hours. Both Brent and U.S crude prices snapped three-session losing streaks on Wednesday, gaining $2 or more after data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed a fall in rigs drilling for oil resulted in a drop in U.S. output last week for the first time since late-December. Brent crude for May delivery (LCOc1) was down 37 cents at $56.73 a barrel by 0408 GMT.
  • Big bank brokers use decoys, spy tactics to go alone
    Secret contracts, covert real-estate deals, scurrying around after nightfall to avoid detection: this is how far big-bank brokers are prepared to go when they plan to go independent. The Botkin Group, a team of brokers in Pittsburgh who produced $1.6 million in revenue last year for Morgan Stanley, went so far as to require non-disclosure agreements from contractors who made new signs, installed phones and delivered furniture to their new office. "We felt like we worked for the CIA," said Lester H. Botkin, 35, the youngest of the group, which also includes his father, Lester P. Botkin, 63, sister, Sara Botkin, 37, and one client service associate. They represent growing numbers of brokers who are leaving big bank brokerages, such as Morgan Stanley, Bank of America's Merrill Lynch, Wells Fargo Advisors and UBS Group AG to branch out on their own.
