CANNON BEACH — Windermere Stellar announced real estate brokers representing the company’s Top 10 percent of 2014 production.
A combined total of 2,008 real estate transactions in 2014 were handled by these professionals in the Portland metro area and the North Coast.
These brokers consistently play a large role within Windermere Stellar’s unique culture of charitable giving. Last year, the company’s 11 offices combined to donate $370,000 to 45 local charities supporting low-income families and children throughout the communities they serve.
“We honor these brokers because they embody the spirit of Windermere Stellar — that of helping to make our local neighborhoods thrive,” said Joan Allen, co-owner of Windermere Stellar. “Their success comes from providing their clients with high quality and personalized service.”
The top 2014 broker from the Cannon Beach office was Kate Merrell, a self-professed “real estate junkie.” Before turning 40, she had built two new homes and completed major remodels on three. As a real estate broker for the past seven years, she’s helped buyers and sellers in Cannon Beach, Arch Cape, Manzanita and surrounding areas.
The top 2014 brokers from the Gearhart office were Melissa Eddy and Barbara Maltman.
A native of Gearhart, Eddy’s father was the chief of police, and her brother serves as the town’s fire chief. Prior to her real estate career, she promoted the area for the Seaside Chamber of Commerce.
Born and raised in Seaside, Maltman has nearly 20 years of experience and specializes in new construction, ocean front/view homes and the second home market.
