PROPERTY MANAGEMENT FIRM OPENS

By Ellen Babin

Pilot staff writer

Melissa Clarke brings calm, flexibility, organization – and some fresh ideas – to her new business, Paragon Property Management.

A native of Idaho, Clarke and her family moved to Brookings a year and a half ago.

For about seven months, Clarke worked with former owner Marcia Alford, to be sure that property management was what she wanted to do.

With Oregon certification to be a property manager, in hand, Clarke took over the business in April.

As a property manager, she helps homeowners keep tabs when they have renters in their homes. Her packages for management include drive-by checks, maintenance, rent collecting and paying utilities.

In addition, for owners who don't want to rent out their property, services include "storm checks" and reports on the condition of the homes.

She has a "great housekeeping staff and an excellent handyman," who, she said she would "trust with my life."

A new feature has been added to her property management, "a light, refreshing cleaning of the inside of the homes in preparation of an owner's return," she explained.

Clarke brings to the job the experience of taking care of rentals for her parents.

"I'm a people person," she said. "Property management is something I like doing; it fits my life and my family's needs."

For information, phone Clarke at (541) 412-7995. Paragon Property Management is located in Brookings at 1240 Chetco Ave., Suite C.

  • Anti-austerity protests in Greece as bank shutdown bites
    It won't be me," he said in an interview on Greek state television as one of the biggest rallies seen in Athens in years was taking place. European leaders and policy makers, wrong-footed by Tsipras' shock announcement of the referendum in the early hours of Saturday morning, warned that it would be a plebiscite on Greece's future as a member of the single currency. With Greece hours away from defaulting on a 1.6 billion euro loan from the International Monetary Fund, the crisis has escalated quickly.
  • China stock slide adds to Greek jitters; yen, bonds in favour
    Asian shares held near five-month lows on Tuesday after Chinese stocks took another leg down while safe-haven assets received a boost as investors nervously awaited further developments in the deepening euro zone crisis. China's stocks (.SSEC) tumbled more than 4.5 percent in early trades, wiping out more than a quarter of its market capitalisation from a peak hit earlier this month, despite surprise monetary easing moves over the weekend. Volatility in China's stock market in recent days has rippled through Asia, weighing on stock markets from Mumbai to Australia, and prompting investors to rush to the sidelines.
  • Microsoft hands display ads to AOL, maps to Uber
    Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) said on Monday it will hand over its display advertising business to AOL Inc and sell some map-generating technology to ride-hailing app company Uber, as it slims down its money-losing online operations. The moves mean Microsoft will focus on its growing search advertising business based on its Bing search engine, and displaying maps on its Windows devices rather than generating the maps themselves. Microsoft, which employs hundreds of people in its display ad business around the world, said those employees would be offered the chance to transfer to AOL and that it was not making any layoffs.
