PARAGOULD--Everyone likes to receive a pat on the back for doing a good job at work every now and then. But what if your peers said you were the best in the state? That's exactly what Arkansas realtors thought about one woman in Paragould.
Debbie Rawls of Paragould is the 2004 Arkansas Realtor of the Year. Rawls, a real estate broker with Chesser-Taylor Century 21, took the top honor last Friday during the Arkansas Realtor Associations' annual meeting in Fort Smith. Although she wouldn't tell you, she has a statewide reputation for outstanding professionalism, dedication and high principals. Rawls says she just lives by the golden rule.
"I would want my agent to follow up with me and search every corner available for that home for me," said Rawls.
