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.

  • Doubts over U.S. growth cool dollar rally
    The U.S. dollar lost ground on Thursday, the last trading day of the week for many markets ahead of Easter, after disappointing economic data on Wednesday raised doubts over the growth outlook ahead of key jobs data due Friday. Thursday's pullback in the U.S. dollar index (.DXY), which is still up some 8 percent year-to-date, gave a boost to emerging-market stocks (.MSCIEF) -- trading at a one-month high -- as main emerging currencies strengthened against the dollar. The mood was more muted in Europe, where the pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 (.FTEU3) equity index slipped 0.1 percent and eurozone bond yields traded flat to higher. "People are reluctant to chase the market higher today because of the U.S. payrolls coming tomorrow when Europe will be closed," FXCM market analyst Vincent Ganne said.
  • Oil eases below $57 as Iran, big powers negotiate
    Oil prices slipped on Thursday as officials from the big global powers remained locked in nuclear talks with Iran that, if successful, could allow the Islamic state to release more crude oil onto world markets. Negotiations on Tehran's disputed nuclear program have stretched well beyond a self-imposed March 31 deadline, with diplomats saying the chances of a preliminary accord in the next few hours are finely balanced. Tehran is hoping for a deal that will end crippling economic sanctions and allow it to sell millions of barrels of oil, some of it stored at sea in supertankers and ready for delivery. Brent crude for May (LCOc1) was down 30 cents at $56.80 a barrel by 0800 GMT.
  • Big bank brokers use decoys, spy tactics to go alone
    Secret contracts, covert real-estate deals, scurrying around after nightfall to avoid detection: this is how far big-bank brokers are prepared to go when they plan to go independent. The Botkin Group, a team of brokers in Pittsburgh who produced $1.6 million in revenue last year for Morgan Stanley, went so far as to require non-disclosure agreements from contractors who made new signs, installed phones and delivered furniture to their new office. "We felt like we worked for the CIA," said Lester H. Botkin, 35, the youngest of the group, which also includes his father, Lester P. Botkin, 63, sister, Sara Botkin, 37, and one client service associate. They represent growing numbers of brokers who are leaving big bank brokerages, such as Morgan Stanley, Bank of America's Merrill Lynch, Wells Fargo Advisors and UBS Group AG to branch out on their own.
