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.

  • Asian stocks dip, euro stuck near one-year lows
    The index managed to carve out gains on Monday, brushing aside the Ukraine crisis and a downbeat China manufacturing survey. The common currency was expected to remain under pressure ahead of Thursday's European Central Bank policy meeting. While many market participants do not expect the ECB to take major easing steps this week, a few are seen braced for new policy measures with further central bank easing considered a matter of when and not if in the face of risks to euro zone growth posed by the Ukraine conflict and stubbornly low inflation. "This week may start to mark the biggest shift in global monetary policy since 'Abenomics' went into full steam on the appointment of Haruhiko Kuroda to head up the BOJ," equity strategists at Jefferies wrote in a note to clients.
  • China's Li Ning stumbles from gold medal position to no man's land
    In 2010, former Chinese gymnast Li Ning led a surging $4 billion sportswear business, a gold-medal pinnacle echoing his victories at the 1984 Olympic Games. Now, the Li Ning (2331.HK) business is more reminiscent of the ex-sportsman's exit from the 1988 Olympics without a podium finish. As customers have turned to aspirational global brands like Nike Inc (NKE.N) or cheaper local firms, Li Ning has racked up heavy losses, losing four-fifths of its market value.
  • Hollande, Draghi agree on threat of deflation: official
    French President Francois Hollande and European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi agreed on Monday that deflation and weak growth were threatening the European Union's economy, an official in the president's office said. Draghi called last week for greater emphasis on fiscal stimulus over austerity - comments that irritated German leaders but were welcomed in France because they hinted at a shift away from a current emphasis on budgetary austerity. "I think the diagnosis is a shared one," an advisor to Hollande told reporters after an hour-long meeting between the Socialist president and Draghi at the Elysee presidential palace. The two men shared the view that weak growth and a threat of deflation in the European Union were problems that needed to be addressed, the advisor added.
