With fanfare and red-carpet treatment, the area's top producing realtors for 2007 were honored in a special event Thursday night.

Topping the list of 31 multi-million dollar agents were Marianne Padilla and Georgia Poole-Alexander, of Re/Max Coast and Country in Harbor.

It was the third year that Chetco Federal Credit Union has organized the event for real estate agents in Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach. The Curry Coastal Pilot and Daryn Farmer/State Farm Insurance led the list of co-sponsors.

"Our goal is to not only recognize the achievements of these top realtors, but to show our appreciation for all the work and dedication they give to their profession and our community," said Bret Curtis, Real Estate Business Development officer for Chetco Federal Credit Union.

The regular tables at Bella Italia Ristorante were swept aside to make room for the evening reception, as well as the red carpet that Curtis rolled out before announcing the honorees. Amid high-fives and hugs, each received a plaque recognizing their acheivement for the year.

The other multi-million dollar agents for 2007 were Shirley Beaman-Hogben, Tammy Beckley, Tiny Caudell, Bruce Chambers, Robert Concienne, Darcy Costa, Yvonne Dunn, Suzie Etchart, Michelle Evans, Marie Gray, Angela Haralson, Maxine Keiley, Carole Lute-Erb, Ann MacLean and Jan Loren, BJ Martin, Amy Myrah, Karl Nettgen, Jan Norman, Sarah Pettinger, Jackie Pratt, Pam Savage, Charles Simpson, Mary Stansell, Ken Thompson, Cy Vandermeer, John Volz, Becky Watwood, Ruth Wilson.

Attending the event were officers of the Curry County Board of Realtors, members of the Chetco Federal Credit Union board of directors, owners and employees of the sponsoring companies, those realtors being recognized and their guests.

Similar events are set for Crescent City, Calif., and Port Orford/Bandon over the next week.

Other sponsors for the event were Kevin Moerke of Edward Jones, the Law Offices of Alexandria Chris Streich, Jeff Legg Appraisal Services, Zia Dream Homes, Kurt Kessler Kustom Builder, Harbor View Windows Heating and Air, David Twining of South Coast Home Inspections, Greg Rosental Professional Inspection Services, Spinner's Restaurant and Riverview Restaurant.

  • Amazon's tax-free European profits drop after IRS clamp-down
    The amount of money Amazon.com Inc reports through a tax-exempt vehicle in Europe has dropped sharply in the past two years, even as European sales jumped, after the U.S. tax authority tightened rules it felt were being abused to shift profits. Amazon minimises its tax bill by having the U.S. unit which owns its technology licences lease the rights to re-license the technology to a tax-exempt partnership based in Luxembourg. The Group of 20 leading economies has vowed to crack down on corporate tax avoidance and the practice of shifting profits into low or no tax jurisdictions.
