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.

  • Apple shares reach 2014 highs, Asian stocks lag
    Shares in tech heavyweights Apple and Facebook held hefty after-hours gains on Thursday as their results handily outpaced Wall Street expectations, though Asian markets managed only a mumbled cheer on the news. South Korea's Samsung Electronics did gain 0.6 percent but the main KOSPI index dipped a fraction. Markets were mixed across the region with Japan's Nikkei off 0.6 percent but Singapore up 0.5 percent. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan edged ahead by 0.1 percent.
  • Apple expands buybacks by $30 billion, OKs 7-for-1 stock split
    Apple Inc has approved another $30 billion in share buybacks till the end of 2015 and authorized a rarely seen seven-for-one stock split, addressing calls to share more of its cash hoard while broadening the stock's appeal to individual investors. Activist investor Carl Icahn, who had famously called on the iPhone maker to boost its buyback program, tweeted his approval of the move on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Apple reported sales of 43.7 million iPhones in the quarter ended March, far outpacing the roughly 38 million that Wall Street had predicted. But whether Apple can again produce a revolutionary new product remains the central question in investors' and Silicon Valley executives' minds.
  • Buffett: moving oil by rail safely major industry concern
    Warren Buffett, chairman of conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said on Wednesday that safety is a major priority for the rail industry, after a recent spate of accidents raised concerns about how to transport oil safely. He added that the delay in the construction of the Keystone pipeline was unlikely to prompt additional purchases of tank cars at Berkshire railroad unit BNSF. Buffett also said, in an interview with CNBC the same day, that he thinks Coca-Cola's equity compensation plan was excessive, but that Berkshire Hathaway abstained in a shareholders vote. Earlier on Wednesday, Coca-Cola said 83 percent of shareholders approved the plan.
