Tribble honored as Realtor of the Year

President of the Curry County Board of Realtors, Evonne Tribble, said she was completely surprised when past president Skip Watwood announced the winner of the Realtor of the Year Award at the board’s meeting Thursday, Sept. 16.

“He caught me unaware,” she said. “He said that the award winner wasn’t at the meeting, but he would make the announcement anyway, so when he called my name, it was a big surprise.”

When Tribble, who has been in real estate since 2004, was asked why she thought she received the award, she responded, “I don’t know. I guess it’s because of all the work I did this year, like garbage pickup and building the float for the Azalea Festival. I was president elect, and the president elect always does all the work.”

When asked about business, she said, “Business is good.”.

She added, “I love selling real estate. I wanted to do it for a long time and finally just decided to go for it.”

She also noted, however, that she works diligently at promotion, including using the Internet, and putting ads in restaurant menus, and on the carts at Fred Meyer.

It obviously pays off because she has been the recipient of the multi million-dollar sales plaque.

She also credits her association with Premier Properties and as a principal broker with Cushman & Tebbs Sotheby’s International Realty. Her associates in the firm include those in the local office, Yvonne Dunn Rigotti, Sherry Strain, and Robert Concienne, plus Fred Coyle, who alternates between Brookings and an office in Florida, and Linnea Miller who is a principal broker in Bend.

Tribble can be reached at her Sotheby’s office, 937 Chetco Ave., Suite A. The office telephone number is 541-412-8100 and her cell number is 541-661-2636.

Because Tribble loves selling real estate, she said she is always ready, willing and able to share information with anyone who is interested.

  • Deutsche Bank first-quarter profit falls by half as legal charges bite
    Deutsche Bank's (DBKGn.DE) earnings fell by half in the first quarter, a greater-than-expected drop as hefty legal charges eroded gains in investment banking revenue, while it prepares to unveil details of a strategic overhaul. Almost half came from the investment bank, but its pre-tax contribution fell by more than half due to litigation and regulatory expenses and currency swings, the bank said on Sunday. Deutsche has so far positioned itself as Europe’s “last man standing” in investment banking, even though it has made cuts in certain business lines. Deutsche on Friday announced a new strategic plan including the sale of its Postbank (DPBGn.DE) retail chain and additional paring back in investment banking.
  • More central banks meet, but ability to pilot economies in doubt
    Most central banks have been easing policy since the start of the year and are set to do more, but it still isn't clear whether that new activism, which has pushed stock markets to record highs, will help the global economy much. Several meet this week to set policy, including the U.S. Federal Reserve, the Bank of Japan and Sweden's Riksbank, which all have turned to government bond purchases as stimulus after running out of interest rates to cut. The Fed shut its quantitative easing (QE) program just over six months ago. Few expect the Fed to use its two-day meeting as a launching pad for what will eventually be the first interest rate hike in nearly a decade.
  • SEC's stock market reform club locks out retail brokers
    The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is convening a group of financial industry veterans for the first time next month to consider stock market reforms, but one group will be conspicuously absent: retail brokerages. The SEC's 17-member Market Structure Advisory Committee includes representatives of fund companies, an exchange, off-exchange trading venues, dealers, and academia, among others. The group, which meets four times a year, will review old rules, and advise the SEC on a range of new regulations designed to make sure the market is as stable and fair as possible. Still, given that the SEC has said its main priority is to protect retail investors, the omission of retail brokers raises questions, because without their point of view the panel may recommend changes that favor institutional investors, analysts said.
