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.
