Bend, Oregon real estate company’s honored for sustainable practices

Bend, OR, March 06, 2010 -- The Central Oregon Builders’ Association
(COBA) honored Brooks Resources Corporation, a Bend, Oregon real estate
company, as “Green Developer of the Year” at its annual Awards of
Excellence gala earlier this month. The award was based on several
criteria, including community service, sustainable practices, industry
recognition and involvement with COBA activities.

“Sustainable practices in developing the land we’ve called home for many
decades is one of the core objectives of our company,” said Romy
Mortensen, vice president of sales and marketing for Brooks Resources
Corporation. “From master-planning our communities based on natural
features and mature trees, all the way to restoration of native
landscape, we keep our delicate high desert environment in mind. We are
honored to be recognized by COBA for this commitment.”

Along with the development of premier neighborhoods that meet the needs
of a diverse population, Brooks Resources Corporation takes special care
to conserve natural surroundings around home sites and encourage
positive, sustainable community growth. 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 that improve the quality of life in this very
special area.

The annual COBA awards ceremony honors the best of the best, recognizing
those members who have stood out over the previous year in COBA, in their
business and in the community.
