Bend, Oregon real estate company is honored for its role in helping to
grow the area responsibly

Bend, OR, January 25, 2013 -- The Central Oregon Builders Association
(COBA) honored Bend, Oregon real estate development company Brooks
Resources Corporation with its 2012 Developer of the Year at its annual
Awards of Excellence gala earlier this month. The award was granted based
on criteria such as the company’s vision for developing land for housing
throughout Central Oregon and its forty-year-plus history contributing to
the landscape of the region.

Brooks Resources was founding member of COBA 41 years ago, helping to lay
the foundation for what COBA has become today,” said Tim Knopp, executive
vice president of COBA. “With developments that have shaped Central
Oregon – ranging from Black Butte Ranch to NorthWest Crossing – Brooks
Resources’ commitment to our industry and our community is indisputable.
This is their fourth COBA Excellence Award, and we were honored to
present it to them.”

In the last year, Brooks Resources Corporation has continued work on
award-winning neighborhoods like Bend’s NorthWest Crossing, a joint
venture with Tennant Family Limited Partnership, as well as projects like
North Rim on Awbrey Butte, IronHorse in Prineville and Yarrow in Madras.
Designed to meet the needs of a diverse population, the company also
takes special care to conserve natural surroundings around home sites and
encourage positive, sustainable community growth.

Beyond its real estate projects, Brooks Resources also has a strong
commitment to giving back to the community it calls home. To continue
nurturing an active relationship with Central Oregon, the corporation
formed the Bend Foundation, which supports education, arts and cultural
institutions, parks and other endeavors with a minimum 3% of the
company’s pre-tax profits each year. In addition, employees are
encouraged to volunteer in the community and given paid time off each
week to spend time doing charitable work. Brooks also has an employee
matching contribution program whereby cash contributions made by
employees to non-profit organizations are matched dollar-for-dollar by
the company, up to $1000 annually.

Brooks Resources Corporation has a long history delivering quality real
estate products and services in Central Oregon. With roots in the
original 1916 Brooks-Scanlon lumber company that sparked a boom in Bend’s
growth for the next half century, Brooks Resources is one of the oldest
and most respected developers in the area.
